Johannesburg - Public servants will get a seven percent wage increase, Public Service Minister Lindiwe Sisulu said on Tuesday.

"The increase is effective from May this year, and for 2013 to 2015 the increase is Consumer Price Index plus 1%," Sisulu said in a statement.

The agreement, between labour unions and the government, indicated it was possible for parties to solve problems together, she said.

"This three-year agreement allows for the employer and labour to implement all elements of the agreement. The three years are also in line with government planning cycle and ensure stability and proper planning for both parties."

It was further agreed to amend the qualifying period for pay progression from 12 to 24 months for new public service employees.

Workers would get more annual leave and cash awards for long service.

"The employer was relieved that after six months of difficult negotiations, parties have finally come to this conclusion."
