Cape Town - The Cosatu-affiliated Southern African Clothing and Textile Workers’ Union (Sactwu) held its National Bargaining Conference from March 18 to 21 2016, in Cape Town, since 2016 is a collective bargaining year for all its major industrial sectors.

Its longer-term wage agreements - most of which were for two years - will expire at the end of June and August 2016.

Sactwu will negotiate in three national bargaining councils - clothing, textiles and leather - two provincial bargaining councils - canvas goods in Gauteng and laundry in KwaZulu-Natal - eight company group level negotiations and also conduct just over 100 plant level wage bargains.
