DlodloANA reports that Public Service and Administration Minister Ayanda Dlodlo said on Friday that wage talks between government and public sector unions would proceed on Tuesday.  

In a statement, Dlodlo's ministry said she met with the leadership of unions on Friday following concern that government was delaying the conclusion of the talks.   "We have agreed with the unions that talks must proceed apace and that the PSCBC [Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council] will commence on Tuesday, 17 April 2018."  Dlodlo asked public servants to be patient with the process, which should already have been completed since annual increases would ordinarily have come into effect this month, but will now have to be backdated.  "We are much closer to each other now in terms of the issues on the table and we appeal for patience from all concerned in this regard," she said.
