Wage agreement in glass industry

Trade unions and employers in the glass industry have reached a wage agreement after a strike that lasted for almost a week, Solidarity said in a statement.

The unions that have signed the agreement are the Chemical, Energy, Paper, Printing, Wood and Allied Workers Union, Solidarity and the South African Chemical Workers Union. Solidarity said that the strike had had a paralysing effect on the glass industry countrywide. A wage increase of 6% was agreed upon, the union added. According to Solidarity's spokesperson in the chemical industry, Marius Croucamp, the agreement was of particular importance due to the conflict within the industry. "The glass industry had an exceedingly difficult negotiation process, with conflict from day one of the negotiations.Solidarity welcomes the agreement, which shows that the parties controlled the conflict and in the end succeeded in reaching agreement."
