MOTOR INDUSTRY


WAGE AGREEMENT REACHED

Dear Motor Industry employer

The Fuel Retailers Association (FRA), Retail Motor Industry Organisation (RMI) and the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa reached an agreement in respect of Sector 5 (Fuel Retail sector) on 13 December 2019.

An agreement in respect of Component Manufacturers and all other sectors, excluding Fuel Retailers, was concluded between the RMI and NUMSA on 27 January 2020.

The terms of the agreements reached fall outside of the mandate received from NEASA members and therefore NEASA will not become a party to the agreements.

The agreements determine that:

1. the duration of the agreement is to be from the date of publication and extension thereof to non-parties by the Minister of Employment and Labour and will expire on 31 August 2022.

  1. increases in the remuneration of employees will be effective as from the date of publication in the Government Gazette by the Minister of Employment and Labour.
  2. increases in remuneration in respect of Component Manufacturers (Sector 1 – Chapter 3) are to be implemented across-the-board, based on actual rates of pay, as follows:

Year 1: 7,5%

Year 2: 7%

Year 3: 7%

  1.  increases in remuneration in respect of Fuel Retailers (Chapter 5) on the minimum rates of pay will be as follows:

Year 1: 8%

Year 2: 7%

Year 3: 7%

  1.  increases in remuneration for all other sectors on the minimum rates of pay will be as follows:

Year 1:   6%

Year 2:5,5%

Year 3:5,5%

  1.  the non-wage components will increase by the same percentage as remuneration for each of the three years and will apply to the standby-, call-out-, tool- and tool allowance for a spray painter.

We will keep members abreast of developments in respect of the effective dates of the agreements.

Please do not hesitate to contact your nearest NEASA regional office should you require any further information.
