Money to be paid to them from R1200.

The Department of Public Service and Administration has confirmed that public servants will receive non-pensionable monthly cash allowance on Thursday.

This is in terms of the public sector wage agreement that was reached by the government and public sector unions.

Civil servants are set to receive a monthly cash allowance of between R1 200 and R1 695 including the back pay to April 2021.

The deal included a 1.5% wage increase for employees who did not qualify for a pensionable increase.

It should be noted that the Department of Public Service and Administration is also still busy with the implementation of the non-pensionable cash allowance for part-time employees. This will be finalized as soon as possible.

Makhasi says for members of the South African Police Service, the non-pensionable cash allowance will be paid by no later than 20 September.

"The date for the implementation of the 1.5% pensionable increase which was also provided for in the Resolution 1 of 2021, will be announced soon,” Public Service and Administration director-general Yoliswa Makhasi said in a statement.

On the other news, municipal workers are set to have salary increase.

Another good news is that the municipal workers will also have their salary increase. This comes after a successful negotiations with the unions and the government.

The South African Local Government Association (SALGA) has been in salary and wage negotiations with the South African Municipal Workers Union (SAMWU) and Independent Municipal & Allied Trade Union (IMATU) since March 2021.

Following Wednesday’s deal all municipal employees will receive 3.5% increase, with effect from 1 July 2021, along with once-off non pensionable cash allowances. Those earning R12 500 or less at July 1 will receive a once-off amount of R4 000 and those earning more will get R3 000.

When the matter went into arbitration in July, Samwu had previously demanded a R4 000 salary increase across the board and a sectoral minimum wage of R15 000. At the time the union wanted a certificate on non-resolution "paving way for a nationwide strike action in all of the country's 257 municipalities and their entities".
