SACTWU accepts CCMA’s offer to mediate in dispute

By Kim Saulse

Textile workers’ union Sactwu has accepted the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration’s offer to mediate in the union’s dispute with employers.

Last week the union rejected the employers latest wage offer, causing the strike in the sector to continue.

Sactwu says their offer of an 8% increase, although in line with the workers original demand, comes with too many conditions.

The countrywide strike started on Tuesday.

If employers accept the CCMA’s offer, a senior negotiator will mediate at the commission’s Johannesburg head office tomorrow.
