The Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC) is constituted by the following trade unions; DENOSA, HOPSERSA, NAPTOSA, NEHAWU, POPCRU, PSA, SADTU, SAPU representing 1,2 million public servants and the State as Employer representative of all National Departments and Provincial Governments.
The process of negotiations for a wage adjustment and other conditions of service, started on the 1st March 2021 with the submission of demands from Labour. These negotiations take place against the backdrop of the application for leave to appeal the Labour Appeal Court judgement on the implementation of Clause 3.3 of PSCBC Resolution 1 of 2018, at the Constitutional Court. In facilitating the process, the PSCBC is duly aware of these challenges and fully respect the view and opinion of both parties to council.
In leading up to the start of the negotiations, parties met on the 16th March 2021 under the auspices of the PSCBC as required in clause 16.3. of the PSCBC constitution and PSCBC Resolution 03 of 2017.
With the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic sweeping through the country, every effort must be made to limit transmission. Safety at work is paramount to ensure the wellbeing of employees and their families, as well as business productivity. Minimising the impact of the second wave in workplaces requires that employers across the public and private sectors, together with unions, take the lead in working together to get the “safe back2work” message out.
Raising awareness among workers and employers has been made much easier through the release of six educational videos which have been loaded onto the Return2Work website. These free, light-hearted, Covid-19 workplace educational videos are available in isiZulu, isiXhosa and seSotho with English subtitles.
