SURVEY: Bargaining Unit Wage &
Workplace Trends (2021/2022)

SURVEY CLOSING DATE: Wednesday 9th February 2022

How is your organisation positioned for sustainability?

As organisations are focusing their efforts on economic recovery and sustainable growth coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic, social unrest and technological disruption, they have to ensure that they are making sustainable decisions when it comes to budgeting for wage increases, managing terms and conditions of employment and balancing various workforce models.

We believe that organisations must be innovative and in alignment with best practice when dealing with these issues as they require a differentiated response.

In order to get a better understanding of the organisational response, particularly within the traditional bargaining unit (technical, semi-skilled and unskilled workforce), this survey will cover the key areas listed.

The key areas of focus will include:

  • Wage and substantive terms within Bargaining Units,
  • Unionised and non-unionised environments,
  • Trends in outsourcing and use of TES,
  • Demands and counter-demands,
  • Duration of negotiations and engagement climate,
  • Disputes and industrial action.

We encourage you to participate in this survey to see how the market is responding.

NB: Data will be kept strictly confidential
and will not be reported per individual practice.
