National Bargaining Council for the Clothing Industry – Extension of Main Agreement

On Friday, 12 April 2013, the minister of Labour extended the period of operation of the main agreement that applies to the National Bargaining Council for the Clothing Industry. The current agreement will be valid until 31 August 2016 according to Government Gazette No. 36360 (http://www.info.gov.za/view/DownloadFileAction?id=188134)

The same agreement has also been extended to non-members of the council which means that employers who operate in the industry but are not affiliated to the council must still apply the minimum wage rates prescribed by the National Bargaining Council (http://www.info.gov.za/view/DownloadFileAction?id=188135)
