Wage increases and exemptions
Management Briefs on the Wage Increases and the Wage Exemptions can be obtained on the Main Agreement portal here. To access the portal, members can purchase a password for R310 (excl. VAT). With this, they will also receive the Main Agreement handbook, at no additional cost. The password provides the access to the portal until 20 June 2017.
Our Industrial Relations and Legal Services Division will unpack the Main Agreement, including exploring wage increases and exemptions, at a training during June and in November 2016. For companies that look for a more affordable training option for larger groups, in-house training will be provided.
