In our company there are two types of employees namely those that belong to the bargaining union and those that does n''t belong to the bargaining union.I''m at grade 6 according to the grades that are at our company,but my salary is lower than a grade 4 employee after they introduce a new system called a total package.Employee above grade 4 are forced to belong to total package by our employer hence you loose a certain percentage of medical aid contribution made by employer,while on the bargaining unit the employer is subsidising them by 50% on medical aid.We are told that everything namely housing allowance and medical aid subsidy is all there,not reflected.

You signed a contract and for 5 years your employer honoured that contract by paying you a salary.Now after 5 years you want to break the contract and still expect them to pay you.

Unfortunately the employer has the right to withhold the payment of your salary and all leave etc due to you if you break the contract.Rather give the proper notice of 1 calender month
