NAPTOSA Gauteng News Flash 30 of 2015: Implementation of Wage Agreement and Common examinations

Earlier this week it came to the attention of the trade unions in the PSCBC that the Employer intended to reduce the agreed salary increase of 7% to 6,4%. This is based on a provision in PSCBC Resolution 1 of 2012 that if the actual CPI for a period is lower than the projected CPI, the difference will be deducted from the salary adjustment of the following year. The projected CPI for 2014/15, on which the salary increase for 1 April 2014 was based, was 6,2%, whilst the actual average CPI for the period was 5,6% -  leaving a shortfall of 0,6%.

As far as NAPTOSA and the other unions are concerned, negotiations were concluded on 19 May 2015 on the understanding that there was a complete meeting of minds that employees would be receiving a salary adjustment of 7% on 1 April 2015, irrespective of what previous agreements might have determined.
