The agreement makes provisions for a new wage structure based on adjustments and comparative data within the financial sector, along with funeral, maternity and paternity, trade union education and sick leave as part of a new regime of fringe benefits.

The parties will meet at the Department of Labour on February 1, 2013 to affix signatures to their first industrial agreement.
