From the 1st of January 2018, the minimum wages for workers in the Contract Cleaning Sector will be increased, this increase is only valid until the 30th of November 2018, likely in order to allow the Minimum Wage Act to replace the wage table. Additionally it must be noted that Area B will receive two increases, one on the 1st of January and the second on the 28th of February 2018 in order to comply with collective agreements applicable to that region.
Given the current proliferation of trade unions within the Contract Cleaning Sector it is also likely that individual business may be required, by virtue of collective agreements of their clients being extended, to pay higher minimum wages than those listed in the Sectoral Determination 1.
Area A includes the following municipalities: City of Cape Town, Greater East Rand Metro, City of Johannesburg, Tshwane and Nelson Mandela as well as Emfuleni, Merafong, Mogale City, Metsimaholo, Randfontein, Stellenbosch and Westonaria.
