The new agreement encompasses employment improvements relating to wages, healthcare, and housing allowances.  “We have managed to agree to a settlement offer, which will equate to just over 11%.  But if you break it down, the amount on wages would be about 5.3 %, you have R50 towards housing allowance, and then the medical aid solution is just over 4 %,”said Sactwu spokesperson, Magdalene Jacobs.
