The COSATU-affiliated Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers Union (SACTWU) has now also settled its 2023 wage negotiations for the Footwear sector.

Our trade union signed the new footwear wage agreement yesterday, 28 June 2023. 

With effect from 1 July 2023, our footwear sector members will receive a 7% wage increase. 

The wage settlement follows negotiations with footwear employers represented by the Southern African Footwear & Leather Industries Association (SAFLIA). 

The negotiations took place under the auspices of the National Bargaining Council of the Leather Industry of South Africa (NBCLI), the oldest bargaining council in the country (established on 26 July 1926).

SACTWU General Secretary
