PRESS RELEASE: IMMEDIATE


The Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) has settled its 2018 wage negotiations for the General Goods & Handbags (GGH) leather sector.

The settlement was negotiated under the auspices of the National Bargaining Council for the Leather Manufacturing Industry of South Africa.

An 8% wage increase has been agreed to, with the Association of South African Manufacturers of Luggage, Handbags & General Goods, which is the organisation representing employers in the sector.

The wage increase will come into effect nationally on 1 July 2018 and is effective for a one year period thereafter, following which a new wage agreement will be negotiated.

This sector covers approximately 2000 workers.
