“We engaged with Telkom on the salary negotiations and as Communications Workers Union we are demanding 11%.  We are also demanding equal pay for equal work of value as amended last year in terms of employment equity act,” said Ntetho.  He went on to explain:  “However, as we engaged at Commission for Conciliation‚ Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) Telkom offered 6% which was only the inflation related increase and we have objected on that.”
