Public servants table response to state’s latest wage offer

2010-08-02 13:15

The Public Servants’ Association (PSA) said its members were back at work on Monday (August 2, 2010) while they were considering a response to the government’s latest wage offer.

“The PSA is not going on a strike today. We called our members back to consult with them,” said PSA Cape Town manager Koos Kruger.

Kruger said the union was considering ways to coordinate possible strikes with unions aligned to Cosatu.

If a wage resolution is not reached, the PSA may go on strike by Friday or early next week.

Public servants were demanding an 8.6% salary increase and a housing subsidy of R1 000, backdated to April 1.

The government is offering a 6.5% salary increase and a R620 housing subsidy with effect from July 1.
