The 2022/23 financial year salary negotiations have concluded. The employer tabled the following final offer:
A salary increase for levels 1 – 12 employees in the Public Service, which includes the Non pensionable cash allowance, amounting to R1 000-00 (after tax), as well as a 3% Pensionable salary adjustment (COLA) across the board. (Refer to NNF 21 of 2022).
The 1.5% Pay progression (Due in July) has not been implemented as yet, due to the delay of the Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) agreement. The one will follow the other.
Based on the above proposal, NAPTOSA surveyed its members for a mandate to either accept or reject the offer. The response rate was very low, with less than 6% of the members participating, and some questioning why they were expected to complete another survey.
