Update on processes towards release of jobs for cash report, 06 May 2016
As part of the Minister of Basic Education, Mrs Angie Motshekga’s commitment to engage with stakeholders regarding the Ministerial Task Team's “Jobs for Cash" Report she held a number of meetings in her Pretoria office this week.
On Tuesday the Minister had bi-lateral meetings with the National Teachers Union (NATU), the National Professional Teachers Association (NAPTOSA), and the South African Democratic Teachers Union (SADTU). On Wednesday the engagements continued with the Suid-Afrikaanse Onderwys Unie (SAOU) and the Professional Educators Union (PEU). In the afternoon the Minister met with all School Governing Body Associations.
Emanating from these consultation meetings with the Minister, stakeholders have requested more time to refine their inputs and responses to the report. The Ministerial Task Team with the support of the Minister agreed to give stakeholders the opportunity as requested and therefore the release of the report will be postponed for two weeks to allow for these processes to be concluded.
Stakeholders' responses and inputs will be considered by the MTT and before the final report is published.
The consultation with the various stakeholders this week has highlighted the importance to ensure that all processes are fair, just and followed to the letter. The processes in this regard are as important as the outcome itself and cannot be compromised.
