In a bold move, the Public Servants Association (PSA) has announced a nationwide strike that is set to cause major disruptions at Home Affairs, SASSA, and the Department of Labour. The reason behind this action? A recent skills audit has revealed the shocking presence of illiterate councillors within the government.

The PSA, representing over 235,000 government workers, is demanding justice and accountability. Their primary demand is a 7.5% pay increase for the 2022-23 financial year, which they believe is necessary to address inflation and ensure fair compensation for their hard work.

The potential impact of this strike is significant. Government services, including vital functions such as welfare payouts, could be severely affected. Imagine the frustration and inconvenience that citizens may face if they are unable to access services at Home Affairs or receive the assistance they need from SASSA.

While the strike is undoubtedly a disruptive force, it serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of skilled and competent individuals in public service. The PSA’s actions aim to shed light on the issue and push for necessary reforms within the government.

As negotiations continue, we can only hope for a quick resolution that addresses the concerns of the striking workers while minimizing the impact on the public. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for a fair and satisfactory outcome. 🤞🚫🔒
