Dear NEASA member
As from 1 July 2014, the minimum wage rates in the hospitality sector have been increased to the following:
These increases (7,7%) are only on minimum wage rates. Higher earners therefore do not necessarily have to receive the same percentage increase.
The increases do not apply in areas that are governed by bargaining council agreements, for example the Bargaining Council for the Restaurant, Catering & Allied Trades that applies in Johannesburg and certain surrounding areas, and the Bargaining Council for the Tearoom, Restaurant & Catering Trade in Pretoria.
