So you think there is still no collective agreement for all security guards of private security companies. I thought this agreement was for all security guards, you can give us feedback on this.#What about us (Private Security Officers in South Africa) Wage negotiations in the security sector are continuing. Nothing has been signed yet. According to the South African Security Association (SASA), which is pleased to announce that it has signed a three-year wage contract with the South African Transport and Allied Workers Union (SATAWU) and 14 other industrial unions, in collaboration with the other employers` organizations (South African National Security Employers Association – SANSEA) and the Congress of South African Private Security (COSAPS). This agreement is subject to the proclamation by the Minister of Labour effective September 1, 2015. Increased the minimum wage by 9.8% for the lowest paid workers in the sector in the first year. The agreement applies to psira employees in the A2 to C4 rate unit of the paterson dimmering system.
