Aug 12, 2022 | Uncategorised

12 August 2022 – The South African Revenue Service (SARS) welcomes the suspension of the industrial action by two recognized labour unions, PSA and NEHAWU. The PSA was the first officially to suspend the industrial action from 20 July 2022, followed by NEHAWU on 08 August 2022.

In light of this announcement by the two unions, striking employees are back at work and SARS operations, including trade facilitation at our borders, is continuing as usual.

The suspension of the industrial action affords all parties the opportunity to work towards progressing the negotiations and related discussions towards settling the dispute.  In this regard, a follow-up discussion as well as the National Bargaining process will be scheduled soon to continue the engagements.
