NutriFeeds and FAWU Reach Settlement

FAWU and the animal feed producer reached a settlement on Thursday, 19 October 2016 after nine days of strike action. Members agreed to report to work on 20 October 2016. The settlement includes a wage increase of R 430 for those earning less than R 7481 and a 5-6.5% wage increase for those earning more than the above-mentioned amount. It was also agreed that no employee would be subjected to disciplinary action except for six who contravened the company policies and to which the relevant processes would apply.

Implementation of wage increases will start with the October 2016 pay run and employees will also receive back-dated pay by 8 November 2016.

Three hundred and forty-eight (348) FAW U members employed by NutriFeeds` Mafikeng, Bloemfontein and Viljoenskroon plants have embarked on a protected industrial action on Monday, 10 October 2016. The two parties reached a deadlock with regard to wages and the unfair dismissal of ten employees. CCMA facilitation did not yield any fruitful results.

Negotiations kicked off in April 2016. Viljoenskroon, near Potchefstroom is the biggest plant consisting of 222 employees while Mafikeng and Bloemfontein has 63 employees each.
