Union Nehawu is accusing the government of negotiating in bad faith. The union has come out saying it’s now convinced a war with the government is unavoidable. The union said it’s left confused as to why Public Service and Administration Minister Senzo Mchunu would choose to discuss matters on the eve of the bargaining council sitting.
Government negotiators are expected to respond to union demands with a revised offer on Friday, but the union is convinced government will offer no salary increase, which will leave it with no option but to seek a strike certificate while preparing for a full-blown work stoppage.
Nehawu says it views this as part of a broader agenda by the government to undermine collective bargaining. The government has remained unmoved in its decision to freeze salaries for South Africa’s 1,3 million public servants in the 2021/22 financial year.
