UPDATE ON THE MUNICIPAL WAGE AND SALARY NEGOTIATIONS

JOHANNESBURG: Monday, 16 July 2018: The municipal wage conciliation has been postponed at the request of the South African Municipal Workers Union (SAMWU) and all the parties in the South African Local Government Bargaining Council (SALGBC) conceded. The conciliation process has since been extended while SAMWU continuous to consult its constituents.

Even though it has been a wish of the South African Local Government Association (SALGA) that the matter would have been concluded by now, SALGA as the employer representative respect and accept that SAMWU should be given more time.
