Monthly and fortnightly paid employees with SLASPA within the NWU Bargaining Unit will benefit from an eight percent general wage increase, back pay from March 31, 2012 and adjustments in a few wage scales.
The agreement which will run for a period of three years will have a spread of wage increase of 3.5 percent in Year 1, 2.5 percent in Year 2 and 2 percent in Year 3. The parties have also agreed to work towards a general reclassification structure within a period of two years.
SLASPA and the NWU will meet shortly to affix signatures to the new industrial agreement.
