Since the Fair Wages and Salaries Commission began the PSJSNC in 2010, the increment in base pay for public sector workers has kept declining with the worse seen in 2021 and 2022, 4% and 7% respectively.

In 2011, the increment was 20 per cent and that was considered the highest.

Subsequently, the numbers began declining, as in 2012 an 18 per cent increment was given and that reduced to 10 per cent in 2013.

In 2014, there was no increment but rather, the tripartite agreed to a 10 per cent offer of cost of living allowance (COLA) to cushion workers but an increment of 15 per cent was agreed on in 2015.

In the subsequent years, the agreed increment for  2016  was (10 per cent),

2017  increment was (12.5 per cent )

2018 increment was  (11 per cent).

A 10 per cent increment was offered in both 2019 and 2020.

In 2021 increment was 4% and 7% for 2022 and later Cost of living allowance of 15% added.

End of Strike today 14th July, 2022. Emergency meeting Held again today Concludes 15% COLA effective Date..

A 50% minimum wouldn’t be bad. If the so called article 71 office holders can give themselves 60%, 65%, and 79%, what is preventing them from giving public sector workers the 60% they are requesting? Let’s be serious in this country for once.
