Fake News : 2018 Salary increase


Messages are doing the rounds on social media that an agreement has been reached in the Public Service Co-ordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC) on a wage increase for 2018. According to the information, the salary increase will be 7,7%. Furthermore that educators will receive an additional 0,5 % on their pay progression and that the housing allowance will be increased to R 1 500 p.m.

Please note that the wage negotiations stalled in February 2018 when the employer requested a postponement, presumably as a result of the political changes in the country and the subsequent Cabinet reshuffle which saw the appointment of new Ministers for the Public Service and Administration as well as Finance. There is, therefore, no agreement on a salary increase and the other benefits mentioned above at this stage. Any message that suggests otherwise should be treated as fake news.

NAPTOSA has requested the Minister for Public Service and Administration to move with speed to reignite the wage negotiations as the date for salary increases (1 April) is looming. We trust that this will happen soon. Members will be informed accordingly.
