From the 1st of February 2019, the minimum wages for workers in the Contract Cleaning Sector will be increased. Additionally it must be noted that Area B (Kwazulu-Natal) falls under the Collective Agreement of the Bargaining Council for the Contract Cleaning Sector (BCCCI) and that the conditions of employment are different to the rest of the Country.
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.
Hourly Rate from the 1st of February 2019: R 22.00
Area B covers all areas in Kwazulu-Natal.
Hourly Rate from the 1st of February 2019: R 22.20
Area C covers all areas in the RSA not in Area A or B.
Hourly Rate from the 1st of February 2019: R 20.07
