Steel Industry: Wage Increase and the “MAIN” Agreement

In 2021, Seifsa signed a wage agreement with NUMSA and the other trade union parties to the MEIBC. 

NEASA is not a party to this agreement and there is currently no extended Main Agreement applicable to NEASA members. Consequently, there is no compulsory increase for NEASA members.

NEASA members are further advised not to negotiate with employees and/or any trade union at plant-level regarding an increase for 1 July 2022.

The following is of extreme importance:

Employers who wish to implement an increase on 1 July should conclude a set-off agreement to prevent the possibility of a double increase should the Seifsa agreement be extended.

Please contact your nearest NEASA regional office or call our hotline on 0860 163 272 should you require any further assistance. 

We will inform members immediately should there be any developments in this regard.
