solplaatjieuniversitySABC News reports that members of the National Education Health and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu) at Sol Plaatje University in Kimberley have reached a settlement with the higher learning institution after being on strike for three weeks.  

Union chairperson Keeme Mongale said they would be meeting with the university on Wednesday to sign the agreed settlement.  The members had been demanding a 10% salary hike, an annual 100% bonus and a 13th salary cheque.  “We agreed on a 100% bonus on the low earners and the rest is followed by 80% on those who earn from R470,000 and upwards.  So, others they only remain on 70% bonus.  Others remain on 7% salary increment.  But we managed to say based on the sliding scale let the low earners at least get a upward movement in terms of salary remuneration,” Mongale indicated.
