Salga — an autonomous association covering all 257 South African local governments —  has been caught up in protracted salary and wage negotiations with the South African Municipal Workers Union and Independent Municipal & Allied Trade Union since March.

According to the collective agreement for the current financial year, all municipal employees will receive a 3.5% increase effective from 1 July this year. The remuneration of municipal employees will be adjusted every year with a once-off non-pensionable cash allowance for:

Employees earning a basic salary of R12 500 or less as of 1 July who will receive an amount of R4 000 andEmployees earning a basic salary of R12 501 or more as of 1 July who will get   R3 000The agreement however imposes a zero increase in some benefits such as the homeowners allowance and medical aid. 

Salga said the deal meant that there would be stability in the sector, with no need for year-on-year wage negotiations. “The multi-three year collective agreement will enable municipalities to budget accurately in the medium term budgeting process,” the association said in a statement.

“Municipal employees will dedicate their full attention to rendering accelerated service delivery and the local government can also focus on preparing for the fifth democratic local government elections and the transition without any interruptions.”

ANALYSIS: South Africa must object: Public Protector is wasting state funds with hopeless legal appealsIt took just two sentences for the Supreme Court of Appeal to dismiss Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s application to appeal against the overturning of her report on the decision to grant early retirement to SARS official Ivan Pillay. This is the latest in a series of court smackdowns for the Public Protector which are becoming too numerous to count – and too expensive to tally.
