We are pleased to advise that the new wage tables for 2018 / 2019 have been finalised and are available to download below
Members are required to implement these increases on the 1stof September 2018.
SAPRA Members are advised that the retail margin adjustment of 4.9 cents per litre (from 187.2 cpl to 192.1 cpl) will be implemented by the Department of Energy on the 5thof September 2018, which will be the effective date of implementation of these increases for Sector 5 (fuel retailers). This increase in margin is ring-fenced for wage adjustments only.
The new Main Agreement threshold is R205 433.30 per annum (R198 355 per annum for the purpose of wage increases in Sector 1/Chapter III) per annum and the maximum amount applicable to annual holiday bonuses is two weeks’ wages or R5,100.35, whichever amount is the lesser. The value of all other allowances remains unchanged for the next 12 months.
An employer may pro-rate the guaranteed wage increases for employees with less than 12 months’ service, with the proviso that they will only be implemented with effect from the 7thmonth.
An employer who has granted an increase over and above the prescribed increases during the preceding 12 months may offset those increases against the increases set out below; provided that no wage increases shall be offset on more than one occasion.
If Members have any questions in this regard, they should contact their nearest RMI Regional Office and consult with one of our highly trained IR Specialists.
