SASSA workers affiliated to the Public Servants Association are back at work today after the labor court ordered all parties to return to the negotiating table.
The Department of Social Services approached the court last week seeking an urgent interdict against the ongoing strike by PSA members. It argued that the strike by SASSA employees negatively impacted the payment of grants to beneficiaries.
Speaking to David O’Sullivan on #BreakfastwithDavid the PSA’s Tahir Maepa says he is disappointed that a court had to force the agency into the negation table. The PSA and SASSA have 7 days to find a solution to the salary negotiation impasse.
Sassa is encouraging all social grant beneficiaries to swap their old cards for the new gold car. This is as the deadline for Sassa to cut ties with CPS looms
You can swap on any weekday at any SASSA pay point or SASSA office and selected SAPO offices. Bring your ID and old SASSA card.
ONLY selected SAPO offices have supply of the new SASSA card. The easier way is to swap at a SASSA pay point, to even avoid long ques.
