Joburg Advocacy Group (JAG): Remuneration Increases for Municipal Councillors

Remuneration Increases for Municipal Councillors

JAG is currently petitioning for a cap on remuneration packages for municipal councillors, especially in light of the Minister of Finance's concern that the public sector wage bill isn't sustainable.

Read our letter to the Deputy Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA) here and e-mail the Deputy Minister at yunus.carrim@cogta.gov.za to express your support for this action.

UPDATE, 6 NOVEMBER 2011: Although there's been no official announcement, we believe the proposed remuneration increases for councillors have been put on hold. Thanks to all who supported our call for action on this issue.
