The Employers’ Organisation for Hairdressing, Cosmetology and Beauty (EOHCB)

entered into substantive negotiations with UASA The Union and both parties have

finalised a new Collective Agreement.


This became effective as from 1 June 2023 and will run until the end of December 2025.


Salon owners are urged to read the prescribed basic conditions of employment

applicable to the Hairdressing, Cosmetology, Beauty and Skincare Industry under the

Resources tab on the EOHCB website (www.eohcb.co.za).


These conditions form part of the Collective Agreement of the National Bargaining

Council for Hairdressing, Cosmetology, Beauty, and Skincare Industry.


Among the conditions are the prescribed Salary/Age Increases as follows:

Applicable Nationally (Area A, B, C, & D)

2023: 1 June 2023 – 31 December 2023 – 7%

2024: 1 January 2024 – 31 December 2024 – 6%

2025: 1 January 2025 – 31 December 2025 – 6%


Should it happen that in years 2024 or 2025 the increase of the Consumer Price Index

(CPI) is 2% more than 6%, or, 2% less than 6%, the parties will renegotiate the

percentage increase in question.


As per the EOHCB, employers are advised to refer to the updated salary/wage

schedules to be provided by the National Bargaining Council for Hairdressing,

Cosmetology, Beauty, and Skincare Industry via their website – www.hcsbc.co.za – to

effectively adjust salaries/wages and make deductions as of the June 2023 payroll.


One of the other conditions in the Collective Agreement refers to Annual Leave as

follows:


Applicable Nationally (Area A, B, C, & D)

An employer must grant annual leave equal to the number of days the employee would

have been entitled to within a two-week period, not later than six months after the annual leave cycle.


Should there be any leave days outstanding after this period it must be paid to the

employee by agreement between the parties.


Should the employee refuse to take annual leave when instructed by the employer, the

leave will be forfeited six months after the leave cycle.
