UASA negotiates 5% increase for sugar industry workers

UASA successfully negotiated and entered into a one-year wage increase agreement with the Sugar Manufacturers and Refiners Employers' Association (SMREA).


Employees across the board will receive an increase of 5% on their basic wage/salary with effect from 1 April 2021. A further R200 increase applies for all A-Band employees effective from 1 October 2021 and a further R150 increase for all B-Band employees effective from 1 October 2021.

It was also agreed that employees’ medical incapacity pay will be increased to 70%.

UASA is proud to have been instrumental during the wage negotiation process to reach an agreement given the tough economic circumstances faced by industries.
