Yako, Ms Y to ask the Minister of Communications
Whether, with reference to the reply of the Minister of Public Service and Administration to question 141 for oral reply on 7 September 2018, her department and the entities reporting to her implemented the Public Service Co-ordinating 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 Departments has advised me as follows:
The Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council Resolution 1 of 2012 applies to all posts/jobs that were graded on salary levels 10 and 12 between 01 July 2010 and 31 July 2012 and whose incumbents were appointed on salary level 9 and 11. The Resolution indicates that the incumbents be automatically upgraded to salary level 10 and 12 respectively with effect from 01 August 2012, subject to availability of supporting job evaluation results.
Since the Department of Communications was only established in April 2015, there are no employees that were affected by the above Resolution. The DoC entities are not covered by the Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council.
The department is not aware of a Public Service Co-ordinating Bargaining Council Resolution in the Public Service or applicable to its entities that facilitates the movement of all persons employed on salary level 9 to level 10, and level 11 to lever 12.
The department does implement PSCBC Resolution 3 of 2009 on a case by case basis, which contains the Grade Progression Model for employees on salary level 1 to 12 who are not covered by an Occupation Specific Dispensation (OSD).
