NAPTOSA has made a number of enquiries regarding the payment of salary progression and the information we have received is as follows:
Educators: 1% pay progression may be paid within the next two weeks. During the salary negotiations held earlier this year it was agreed that the interval between notches for educators must be brought in line with other sectors in the Public Service, who have a 1.5% interval between notches. It was furher agreed that this equalisation process would be phased in over two years: an across the board adjustment of 0.3% in 2018 and an across the board adjustment of 0.2% in 2019. It appears as though the 0.3% (for 2018) will be paid once the scales have been finalised
GDE PS (Support staff) Salary progression of 1.5% has been paid.
GDE Therapists: Salary progression not paid
Lecturers and support staff (DHET) No confirmation yet as to when salary progression will be paid
