While discussions regarding the establishment of a Bargaining Council for the industry is ongoing, organized labour has formulated its wage demands.
We fully support the list of the prioritised demands by the organized labour from UASA side, EXCEPT for the Medical Aid for now and proposed that we seriously look at the allowances such as Night Shift Transport Allowance as well as the Transfer Allowance. These are the core issues that directly impact on our members in the sector. We also need to give a special attention to Special Allowances which may add a value to our members in general.
The next Wage negotiations has been scheduled for 22Nd and 23rd of March 2018 and we will keep you informed.
