Health Minister Dr Joe Phaahla has given striking members of the National Education, Health and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu) until Tuesday morning to return to work or risk disciplinary action.
Health workers that were part of the strike action have been ordered to report for duty on Tuesday morning or risk facing disciplinary action. The strike by the union entered its second week. They are demanding a 10% wage increase while government is offering 4.7%.
The Minister has welcomed the Labour Appeal Court’s judgment which interdicts Nehawu members from continuing with their wage strike which started two weeks ago.
” We have given workers in the health sector until morning to return to work, failing which, those that don’t report will be in contempt of the court ruling. They will be putting themselves liable to face charges of misconduct. All managers are obliged in terms of the Labour Relations Act to apply to the principle of no work, no pay. department of Health’s response to Nehawu strike court inter.
