Agri SA acknowledges media reports indicating that president Cyril Ramaphosa signed the National Minimum Wage Act and three other labour amendment acts into law on Friday 23 November 2018.

According to these reports the national minimum wage will commence on 1 January 2019. This means:

• The rest of the agricultural sectoral determination will remain in force as is.

Agri SA will keep members informed of any further developments and we will distribute the official government communication as soon as we receive it.
