[LISTEN] 'We are going to be disruptive'
The Public Servants Association (PSA) is expected to go on a nationwide strike next Monday after wage talks deadlocked with government.
The union has rejected a government wage offer that will see salary adjustments in a three-year agreement which ranges between 6% and 7%, depending on the employee’s level, and include a restructured housing allowance.
Karima Brown spoke to Deputy General Secretary of the PSA Tahir Maepa to find out more.
The intention of trying to leverage those who are earning the lowest is a principle we have no problem with. The issue is the kind of percentages that the government is proposing as a salary increment.Tahir Maepa, Deputy General Secretary of the PSA
We have employees across the public service, from cleaners all the way to the director generals so we are strategically positioned to have a very successful strike and we are not going to go the conventional route of a strike action where people are on the streets running. We are going to be disruptive.Tahir Maepa, Deputy General Secretary of the PSA
