CIVIL SERVANTS PENSION REDRESS MOVEMENT
The Civil Servants Pension Redress Movement (CSPRM) is the official voice of ALL former civil servants in South Africa and those civil servants who previously served in Namibia (formerly South West Africa).
The Public Servants Coordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC) accepted resolutions in 7/1998, 12/2002, 03/2012 and 02/2018, stating that government employees who have been in service on 2 September 1998, would benefit from R8,704 billion which had been made available by the GEPF. The beneficiaries would be those who have suffered discrimination based on race and gender during the previous political dispensation in South Africa.
However, former government employees are crying foul, claiming that apart from not having been informed about the programme, the 2 September 1998 date defies the very purpose of the resolution passed by the PSCBC, as that would mean that precisely those former government employees that have suffered at the hand of apartheid and its vicious spin-offs would not receive anything.
Thousands of disgruntled and affected teachers, health workers, police officers, members of the navy, soldiers and government workers in all state departments have now decided to raise their voices. The Civil Servants Pension Redress Movement (CSPRM) was constituted in Swellendam on 23 May 2019 with an interim executive to address this matter at the highest possible level. Within one and a half months the CSPRM has established its footprint in all nine provinces of the country and Namibia!
The CSPRM endeavours to have this unacceptable state of affairs corrected and has adopted some earth-shattering resolutions during its inaugural national convention during October 2019.
