Please note that although SEIFSA and NUMSA have reached an agreement, that agreement does not apply to our members.  As previously communicated, the agreement that we are pursuing (and have already signed with Solidarity) is explained in the circular of 1 October 2021 (below).  If your employees wish to return to work now that they have heard that the strike is over, our advice is to have them acknowledge, by way of the document available from the office, that they yield to the SAEFA position.  Please be reminded of the webinar where we will be addressing members questions relating to the agreement at 13h00 today.
