Media release: Immediate

The COSATU-affiliated Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) has declared a dispute with the Manufactured Fibres Subsector Textile Manufacturers Association.  SACTWU has declared a dispute because no settlement has been reached after three rounds of negotiations and after the employers have failed/refused to grant us our demands which are set out in the already submitted 2016/2017 substantive proposals.

The Union has written to the National Textile Bargaining Council informing them of the dispute indicating that in terms of the National Textile Bargaining Council’s Constitution, parties are required to settle wage negotiations within 45 days from the date of submission of the substantive proposals.  The 45 days has now expired and the Union has declared a dispute.
