South African woven cotton textile sector workers get 5.5% rise

Those working in the woven cotton textile sub-sector in South Africa will receive a 5.5 per cent wage increase, with effect from last month, i.e. March 1, 2021. The COSATU-affiliated Southern African Clothing & Textile Workers’ Union (SACTWU) has concluded its outstanding wage negotiations for the sub-sector with the National Textile Bargaining Council.

The wage increase agreement was signed by the South African Cotton & Textile Processing Employers’ Association (SACTPEA).

About 8,000 textile workers employed in 72 companies will benefit from this wage increase, according to SACTWU.
