For once I agree with Solidarity. A 5% increase isn't an increase at all considering that the CPI is going to breach the 6% level by the end of the year or early next year.
While I don't agree that employers should be forced to grant double digit increases something in the 6% to 8% bracket is reasonable IMO.
My friends in Telkom said that the managerial levels (normal management, not top management) got less than 3% increases. Apparently they're not part of the bargains, and their increases has already been given.
