The pressure that was brought to bear by our notice of strike action to the management of the Market Theatre Foundation (MTF), gave further momentum to reopen wage talks which ultimately resulted in a settlement agreement being reached.
MTF employees (senior management excluded) will all get an adjustment of 5% across the board with effect from 1 July 2018 and employees will also be paid a guaranteed 13th cheque in December 2018.
The issue of payment of the guaranteed 13th cheque in years to come has been referred to the Market Theatre Foundation Council for deliberation and decision on 11 October 2018. Should the council decide against, UASA will have the right to resume strike action.
