BARGAINING STRATEGY

A fifteen percent (15%) wage increase is required in June 2013 to maintain the level of buying power of the average minimum wage in mid-2010.

Shift the minimum wage to at least R4500 per month (a rough estimate of meeting the basic material needs of a household of 5).

Consider a wage demand which services both higher and lower wage workers. Example - “R400 or 12%, whichever is the greater”.

Pursue demands that build organisation now and in the future.
