In a statement, the union indicated that it had been engaging the employer since 29 April in wage talks. The one-year agreement, which will run from 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023, entails a 7% across-the-board increase; an increase in the transport subsidy from R50 to R100 per shift worked; and an increase in the night shift allowance from R30 to R32 hourly. “The increase in the transport allowance will definitely make a positive difference in the lives of members, given the rapid rise in transportation costs," Numsa commented.
