Botswana Public Employees Union (BOPEU) says it will not rush to apply for admission into the Public Sector Bargaining Council (PSBC).

The union says this is because the 2016/17 salary negotiations will not commence anytime soon due to a pending court case, which has a bearing on the negotiations.

In an interview with Mmegi, BOPEU president Andrew Motsamai confirmed that the union is yet to submit its application to the council. He said their view is that due to a pending court case in which their colleagues, Botswana Federation of Public Sector Unions (BOFEPUSU) are challenging the three percent salary increase awarded by government earlier this year, no negotiations could begin. Motsamai said as such, the union is not in any hurry to submit its membership list to the PSBC secretariat for verification.
