Rawula, Mr T to ask the Minister of Tourism
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?
The Department of Tourism has implemented the Public Service Co-ordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC) Resolution 1 of 2012 as per Department of Public Service Administration (DPSA) circular 4 of 2014. The implementation of Resolution 1 of 2012 was not an automatic upgrade for all persons employed on salary levels 9 and 11, however only those employees whose posts were job evaluated and graded at salary level 10 and 12 but placed at salary level 9 and 11 due to PSCBC Resolution 3 of 2009. All employees who qualified in terms of the PSCBC Resolution 1 of 2012 were upgraded. The total number of thirty-seven (37) employees, twenty (20) Deputy Directors and Seventeen (17) Assistant Directors were upgraded according to the Job Evaluation records.
The above resolution was not applicable to South African Tourism as the entity does not fall under the Public Service Act 103 of 1994.
