Acting Deputy Director General Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA): Negotiations, Labour Relations and Remuneration Management
We as PSCBC awoke to the devastating news that once again death has come like a thief in the night and robbed us of another colleague, Mr Geeva Pillay who was called to rest on the 10 July 2021.
Geeva was the Acting Director General at the Department of Public Service & Administration (DPSA), Negotiations, Labour Relations & Remuneration Management. He was also a Council Member of the PSCBC & the GPSSBC. In his career he diligently served as member of the Executive Committee of the PSCBC. He was a former Chief Negotiator for the State in the PSCBC and also a former Board member of State Information Technology Agency (SITA). In 2012 he received an award at the African India Partnership Summit for "Outstanding professionals who have the vision, flair, acumen and professionalism to demonstrate excellent leadership and management skills in an organisation, making changes and achieving results." And this was truly Geeva flair, acumen and professional.
Geeva was a humble “peoples person” who was well liked by all. He treated all of his colleagues with dignity and respect. He will be remembered for his meticulous sharp wit, excellent writing and communication skills and high moral and ethical values. He always spoke with confidence, without fear or favour. We value the contribution that Geeva has made to the Bargaining Councils, Labour Relations, Public Service and the Country at large.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Pillay family during this dreadful period and we pray that the Lord grants you courage and strength. Any funeral arrangements or memorial/remembrance service will be communicated at the appropriate time.
May your soul rest in eternal peace Dear Geeva
