DISPUTE | MUTUAL INTEREST | SALARY INCREASE
The Salary Negotiations of July 2017, our letter of 13 October 2017 and the several meetings we had thereafter refers.
Further to these meetings and interactions we wish to confirm we have reached a dead-lock on our demand for a ten (10) percent salary increase across the board for BEMAWU members.
BEMAWU members (and only members of BEMAWU) demand an increase of ten (10) percent increase across the board, backdated to 1 April 2017.
The SABC has offered BEMAWU members no increase at all (0%)
Since both parties have not moved from these respective positions, and/or there is no agreement, the parties have reached stalemate, and is therefore in deadlock. To break the deadlock and to settle this dispute, the SABC is required to increase the salaries of BEMAWU members with ten (10) percent, and backdate such increase to 1 April 2017.
Should the dispute not be settled, BEMAWU members may exercise their rights to embark on a strike.
We await your invitation to a dispute resolution as per the Collective Agreement between the parties. Should the SABC not schedule the dispute resolution within the prescribed period, we will proceed to refer the dispute to the CCMA for Conciliation.
