Wage negotiations end in deadlock
15 June 2012
The third round of wage negotiations ended in a deadlock on Thursday.
The South African Municipal Workers Union is demanding an 11.5 percent increase and an improvement on minimum wage.
On the other hand the South African Local Government Association is threatening to remove all existing agreements and is offering a wage adjustment of 4.5 percent.
Collective Bargaining Officer Dale Forbes says they would like a response within three weeks.
