SAMWU completes second round of wage negotiations

The South African Municipal Workers Union has completed its last round of wage negotiations with water sector employer, South African Association of Water Utilities.

Spokesperson Tahir Sema says the employer has not budged in its wage negotiations and is intentionally driving the sector towards a dispute.

He adds that this jeopardizes the nation’s water supply during the World Cup soccer tournament.

The parties represented largely by SAMWU and the smaller unions UASA and NEHAWU are engaged in centralised bargaining for the sector, together with the employers’ organisation SAAWU.

The parties met on Friday for the fourth round of negotiations.
