Ravi Naidoo reports the good news that the Sugar Industry wage dispute has been settled. We have been able to deliver on the mandate given to us by the members and we settled on 7.5%, backdated 1 April. Family responsibility leave of 5 days and 50% of pay for sick leave when a member exhausted his/her sick leave will be paid for 6 months. Other items such as housing and shift allowances, medical aid & reduction of hours will be addressed separately.
Congratulations on a job well done and thank for the support from the members!
