The public sector wage bill is not bloated and it is “irresponsible” of Finance Minister Tito Mboweni to announce a plan to address the issue when there is a bargaining process in place to address such matters, Cosatu said on Thursday.

In his Budget announcement on Wednesday, Mboweni unveiled a plan to cut the public sector wage bill of provincial and national departments by R160.2 billion over three years.

Cosatu President Zingiswa Losi lambasted the announcement, saying the public service was struggling with vacant posts, facing critical shortages in nursing, teaching, and police jobs.
