The revised Personnel Administrative Measures (PAM) applicable to educators in the public service was published by the Minister of Basic Education in Government Gazette No. 396684 on 12 February 2016. The PAM covers condition of service, as well as employment matters, pertaining to educators.
What makes the revised PAM such a prized reference tool is that it encapsulates all the collective agreements of the Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC) and the Education Labour Relations Council (ELRC) that have a bearing on the conditions of service of educators. Members are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the PAM as the answers to many questions regarding conditions of service of educators are contained therein.
