In a last-ditch effort to avoid a labour court showdown with public service unions set to start on Wednesday, Public Service and Administration Minister Senzo Mchunu on Sunday requested a virtual meeting with the Public Servants Association (PSA) to table a proposed settlement to resolve the non-implementation of clause 3.3 of the 2018 resolution 1 of the Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council.

Speaking to City Press on Monday, Acting PSA general manager Reuben Maleka said: “On the eve of the hearing of the Public Service wage dispute before the labour appeal court on December 2, the PSA received a meeting request from the minister of public service and administration to share a proposal to address the salary dispute.”
