UNION SUCCESS ON 0.6% RECOVERY

Common sense and sterling leadership prevailed at a meeting of Unions, the Acting Minister Nathi Mthetwa of the Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA) and Ministers of the mandating committee. The meeting held on 25 June 2015, initiated by the President of the ILC, Mr Basil Manuel, agreed that the outstanding 0.6% owed to public servants will be implemented with immediate effect.

A special PSCBC meeting was called last night at which a new draft resolution was tabled that confirmed the 7% increase for the current year and the projected  CPI+1% for the periods 2016/17 and 2017/2018. However, in a disappointing turn of events, the “Safety net” Clauses (Clauses 3.5 and 3.6 of PSCBC Resolution 2 of 2015) had been removed. This means that if the projected CPI was lower than the actual CPI for the periods indicated there would be no claw-back of the shortfall.


The ILC is of the opinion that instead of removing the safety-net clauses an additional clause ought to have been included to clarify the position of the “claw- back” clause in the final year of the agreement.
The majority party in the PSCBC signed-off Resolution 8 of 2015. This Resolution was not signed by the ILC. Whilst the agreement on the 7% is a victory, the ILC has serious reservations about the remaining period of the agreement.  


With regard to the Medical Aid subsidy, the individual nature of the medical aid payments is delaying the payback, members are urged to be patient on this issue as it is receiving attention and is likely to be implemented in July 2015.

NAPTOSA thanks the leadership and members for their role in ensuring members rights are recognised and wishes all members a restful, well deserved winter vacation.
