The South African Municipal
Workers Union has rejected the South African Local Government Association
latest wage offer of 5.4.
This is the second round of
wage negotiations of which SALGA has revised its offer from 4.4%. SAMWU has
labelled this latest offer as ridiculous. The union says that SALGA is an
employer that does not value or appreciate its employees.
SAMWU Spokesperson Papikie
Mohale said SALGA has not shown commitment in negotiating in good faith instead
they have been dragging their feet at the negotiating table.
Mohale said we want to make
sure that a new agreement is reached before the current main collective
agreement lapses at the end of June.
“However this can only be done
if there is commitment from both sides of the table. It seems as although SALGA
is only interested in ensuring that unions are committed to signing the Service
Charter while neglecting bread and butter issues of our members” Mohale added.
