parliamentNews24 reports that Parliament’s management and the National Education Health and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu) have agreed to increase employees' salaries by 7.5% for the 2017/18 financial year.  

In a joint statement, the parties said the increase would take effect retrospectively from 1 April 2017.  It would cover employees falling both inside and outside of the bargaining unit, but excluded executive management, which would not be getting any salary increase for the 2017/18 financial year.  Part of their agreement was also to work together to build "sound labour relations", as well as to address the underfunding of Parliament.  Both parties also agreed to continue negotiations into "other outstanding matters" through already existing institutionalised platforms, which included monthly management and Nehawu meetings.
