Siphiwe Mashoene from SABPP contacted #PaySlipBanSA to set up a meeting to discuss anti-competition statements made by Maphutha Diaz to MoneyWeb.
We agreed based on condition that they read peer reviewed studies as preparation and that we record and stream the discussion.
We also challenged SABPP to share their peer reviewed studies supporting an unfair power position. Diaz and Mashoene dropped all meeting requests, disappearing as stealthily as thieves in the night.
The following is the #PaySlipBanSA email laying down the terms and conditions for an engagement SABPP couldn’t conform to.
Show us your evidence SABPP!
Good morning Siphiwe
As an educator, ignorance disappoints me. Attached are several studies we request all meeting participants to read in preparation for our discussion.
Divide them up among yourselves please, you will need to know this data to engage with us or it will be a waste of our time.
We expect you to be able to reflect on your conduct and ideology against real data, not facile un-quantifiable beliefs sorely lacking in moral fiber.
Hopefully we can anticipate a discussion on how SABPP is going to be a champion for human rights, not conspiring against public interest.

SHOWDOWN WITH SABPP
PaySlipBanSA has challenged SABPP to a public debate in order to argue the legality of their conduct and defend it in the context of the Constitution. SABPP defends unfair employer monopsony powers. The practice of forcing job applicants to surrender confidential pay information while employers themselves are not transparent about pay during recruitment, is unfair.
Subscribing to a belief where job applicants, labour market participants, lose the right to fairly and freely negotiate for better economic opportunity (a job with better pay), obstructs constitutional rights.
Employers have the right to protect internal compensation information from being used by rival firms competing in the same pool for talent. This means employers can’t use competitor payslips to poach staff nor price-fix offers as this is anti-competition.
Our challenge to SABPP remains open, we are ready to strip them of their prejudice.
