Durban - Services at the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) offices were disrupted on Monday morning as employees affiliated to the Public Servants Association (PSA) downed tools demanding, among other things, a salary increase of between 13% and 15%.
The PSA said the strike is a national one and many offices across the country were not functioning optimally.
At the Umngeni Road office, a group of members picketed outside the office this morning. Apart from the salary increase the workers are demanding that their housing allowance of R1500 be increased to R2500.
Another demand is that of three days “special leave to be granted for religious activities other than that for Christians.”
