In an attempt to avert a strike, and to settle the mutual interest dispute between BEMAWU and the SABC, the SABC has tabled the following offer:

  • A 4.5% ATB increase, back dated to October 2017.

The backdated monies to be paid as follows:

  • Backpay for October & November be paid in February and March 2018 respectively,
  • Backpay for December 2017, January, February and March 2018 be paid at the end of September 2018.

The deferred backpay is as a result of the cash flow problems the SABC finds itself in.
