IT and Telecoms: Solidarity still in dispute with Telkom, investigation will

 





Recent Gauteng Business News


The trade union Solidarity is still locked in a dispute with Telkom over the calculation and implementation of employees’ wage increases after a dispute meeting was held yesterday. Solidarity declared an internal dispute with Telkom in September after it became clear that Telkom applied a one sided interpretation of the wage agreement signed in August. A dispute meeting was scheduled in September but was only held yesterday.


According to the amended wage agreement employees should receive an increase of 11% retroactive from April this year with an additional 0,5% in October this year. According to Telkom's interpretation of the agreement numerous employees are excluded from this increase or receive only a fraction of the increase agreed on, due to amendments of their salary scale. Solidarity maintains that the increase applies to all employees in the bargaining unit.

Solidarity has not declared an official dispute with the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) yet, but reserves the right to lay a complaint if further investigations that will now be undertaken still indicate a one sided interpretation. “Telkom presented further evidence that was compiled in September. Solidarity’s investigation however only covers documentation until August. Further investigation will now be undertaken to examine the evidence presented by Telkom,” explains Solidarity spokesperson Jaco Kleynhans. Solidarity will now liaise with Telkom’s financial department to further investigate any possible incorrect implementation of the wage increase.

Solidarity however still maintains that Telkom employees are excluded unfairly from the wage increase. If after the investigation Solidarity is still not satisfied with Telkom’s interpretation, the trade union will declare an official dispute at the CCMA.
