After submission and examination of the terms of the facilitator’s chronicle unions rejected the proposal and are attributable to this truth for the time being deadlocked.
However, the unions agreed to an extension of the negotiation length until August 2 and 3 when extra meetings had been conducted and recommendations made. At these meetings the unions extra proposed one other extension up until Tuesday August 17.
The most contemporary proposal is an enlarge of 3.5% across the board for all workers as from July 1 and a one-off non-pensionable money fee of R2,000 payable latest by December 31. Alternate unions non-public demanded an enlarge of 4.5% and a one-off fee of R3,000.
The proposed increases for years 2 and 3 of the settlement are in accordance with the stated CPI forecast. If this is below 3% then the enlarge will be build at 3% and, if above 5%, the enlarge will be build at 5%. Unions non-public stated the decrease limit be build at 4% and the elevated limit at 6%.
