The National Education, Health, and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu) members at Sol Plaatje University in Kimberley have reached a settlement with the higher learning institution after being on strike for three weeks.
They were demanding a 10% salary hike, an annual 100% bonus and a 13th salary cheque.
Union chairperson, Keeme Mongale, says they will be meeting with the university tomorrow to sign the agreed settlement.
“We agreed on a 100% bonus on the low earners and the rest is followed by 80% on those who earn from R470 000 and upwards. So, others they only remain on 70% bonus. Others remain on 7% salary increment. But we managed to say based on the sliding scale let the low earners at least get a upward movement in terms of salary remuneration,” says Mongale.
