Khawula, Ms MS to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation
Whether, with reference to the reply of the Minister of Public Service and Administration to question 141 for oral reply on 7 September 2018, his department and the entities reporting to him implemented the Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council resolution that all persons employed in the Public Service as Assistant Directors must have their salary level upgraded from level 9 to level 10, and that all Deputy Directors must have their salary level upgraded from level 11 to level 12; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?
No, it should be noted that not all the Assistant Director and Deputy Director posts in this Department are on level 10 and 12. There are some that have been originally graded on post levels 9 and 11. The Job Evaluation information (generated through the Job Evaluation system) has been used to determine the grading of these jobs. Subsequently, the Job Evaluation results are factored into the approved organizational structure of the Department. Hence, the Job Evaluation database is created to reflect all the jobs, inclusive of all the Assistant Directors and Deputy Directors which are on 9, 10, 11 and 12.
