3. We reiterate our may 4, 2018 advice that SBV will not exceed SASBO`s request to renegotiate salary increases in 2018. The collective agreement of September 1, 2017 binds the SBV to the two parties. We therefore ask SASBO to review the distribution of 8.5% salary increases with respect to employee performance evaluations and to submit a distribution proposal to us as soon as possible. 4. The SBV proposes that a dispute settlement under the recognition contract be held either on Friday, June 8, or Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. at the SBV home.” “ SASBO gave a full context to the case and broadly confirmed what is included in the collective agreement. He confirmed that the union had been fully mandated by the members to obtain the same thing and that this had been done with reference to available information. He attempted to make the information obtained by the employer liable because the union accepted a lesser offer from the SBV. To illustrate this point, he referred to Article 6 of the collective agreement, which deals with the protection of employment. Despite delays caused by the Covid 19 pandemic in South Africa, the union was able to cooperate practically with Capitec and make the necessary progress to reach an agreement.
“This agreement contains all the provisions agreed by the parties with respect to the purpose of the agreement and completely replaces and adversely spares and nods all previous agreements or arrangements between the parties with respect to this agreement, and the parties waive the right to avail themselves of so-called provisions that are not expressly contained in this agreement.”  Article 1.3 of the collective agreement provides that “the parties have concluded their substantive negotiations for the period from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2019 and that the parties have reduced their agreement to the letter.” 2. We confirm that the 2018 salary increases are governed by the collective agreement reached on 1 September 2017 by SBV and SASBO. Paragraph 5.2.1 of the agreement provides that the March 2018 salary increases correspond to the IPV at 3.0%, with a minimum increase of 8.5% and a maximum increase of 8.75%. The CPI for March 2018 was 3.8%. The wage increases for 2018 amount to 8.5% on the agreement of 1 September. Only the distribution of the 8.5% of salary increases per performance rating has yet to be determined in 2018. ” (3) Subject to a collective agreement, no person may participate in a strike, lockout or conduct in view of or promoting a strike or lockout – 7.1 For the purposes of this agreement, a dispute must have arisen when the appropriate corporate or bargaining procedure is exhausted and a dispute has been declared. (c) in the case of a proposed lockout, at least 48 hours “in writing to a union involved in the dispute or, in the absence of such a union, to the workers, unless it is a collective agreement to be concluded within a board in this case, that board must have been informed; or 3.2 From the outset, it was agreed that an agreement with another union would not be reached on more favourable terms, as agreed between SBV and SASBO.
