psaBloomberg reports that the Public Servants Association (PSA) has officially rejected the offer presented by government during wage negotiations at the Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC).  

Government’s offer, made on 4 May, was rejected by the majority of PSA members, the union said in an emailed statement Friday.  The offer was almost the same as the one made on 26 January, it indicated.  The PSCBC adjourned as unions affiliated to labour federation Cosatu requested more time to finalise the mandating process with members, the PSA said.  The parties have agreed to resume council on 15 May.  The PSA represents about 238,000 public service workers.  Negotiations should have been concluded by end-February for implementation by 1 April.
