Several public service unions have blasted government’s interim wage deal as an insult.

The South African Policing Union’s spokesperson Lesiba Thabakgale says that the R 1 000 cash gratuity is an insult. He says that this money is also subject to taxation and is non-pensionable. He  says that this means that the extra money will not have any impact.

SAPU, Nehawu and Popcru have all rejected the 1.5% wage increase offered by government. But government has reached the 50% needed to reach an agreement as other unions accepted the increase.
