President Jacob Zuma has, in terms of section 84(2)(a) of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, assented to the Labour Relations Amendment Act, 2004 (Act No.6 of 2014).
The Act seeks to, amongst others:
(a) Respond to the increased informalisation of labour to ensure that vulnerable groups receive adequate protection and are employed in conditions of decent work.
(b) Ensure that labour legislation gives effect to fundamental constitutional rights, including the right to fair labour practices, to engage in collective bargaining and right to equality and protection from unfair discrimination.
(c) Enhance the effectiveness of primary labour market institutions such as the Labour Court, CCMA, the Essential Services Committee and Labour Inspectorate.
(d) Rectify the anomalies and clarify uncertainties that have risen from the interpretation and application of the Act and the Basic Conditions of Employment Act, 1997 (Act No. 75 of 1997).
The process of Pensions Redress is conducted in accordance with the Public Service Co-ordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC) Resolution 07 of 1998 and Resolution 12 of 2002.
Parties to the PSCBC met today to confirm the annual salary increase for Public Servants for the 2014/15 period. The increase with effect from the 1 April 2014 will be 7,2%. The increase will be implemented together with the salary run on the 15th May 2014 (backdated to April 2014). A further 0,2% owed to public servants between the actual CPI and projected CPI for the 2013/14 salary increase will be paid on 1 May 2014.
