The Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) has settled its 2018 wage negotiations in the Blanket Textile Sector.

The agreement was reached under the auspices of the National Textile Bargaining Council, between SACTWU and our employer counterparts as represented by the South African Blanket Manufacturers Employers’ Organisation (SABMEO).

It is a two year agreement and will cover metro and non-metro areas. For this year, the wage increase for metro areas is 8% and 14% for non-metro areas, respectively. For the next year, it will be a 6.5% increase for all areas.

The effective date of implementation for wage increases in the Blanket Sector is 1 August each year. For this year, it will be back dated to 1st August for those workers in the sector who have not yet received  the increases.

SACTWU is an affiliate of COSATU.
