UPDATE ON SECURITY SECTOR WAGE NEGOTIATIONS
The South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (SATAWU) wishes to update its members, workers in the Security Sector, and the members of the media that it has today the 2nd of August 2022 met at the Bargaining Council of the Private Security Sector in Midrand, with the employer and the commissioner facilitating the process.
The South African Transport and Allied Workers Union can confirm that it has agreed with the employer to extend the conciliation with three (3) dates, which are the 16th of August, the 23rd of August, and the 24th of August 2022.
We wish to inform our members and workers that we are expecting the employer on the 16th of August 2022 to table a better offer to be considered and looked at by the organised labour.
As previously stated, if in these extended dates the employer is still insulting us with their 3.5% offer, we will then on the last day which is the 24th of this month ask the commissioner to issue a certificate to conduct a protected strike.
The South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (SATAWU) wants to state that our demands remain the same, we are still demanding a minimum of 16% increment in the security sector.
As SATAWU we also wish to inform the public that conducting a strike is not our priority however if the employer does not meet us halfway then they are leaving us with no choice but to go on strike as we are not willing to back down on our demands. We will update our members in due course.
