Durban‘s Addington Hospital has been accused of victimising employees who exposed the health facility’s shabby conditions.
The Public Servants Association (PSA) said one of its shop stewards was suspended after raising concerns about safety matters there.
Staff members have complained of ageing infrastructure and non-functional elevators in the 15-storey building that are reportedly affecting patient care.
Patients and workers have to take the stairs as only one elevator is operational — a problem ongoing since 2015. The union said no reasons for the suspension was supplied to them.
A manager at PSA KwaZulu-Natal, Mlungisi Ndlovu, said “if they decide to continue to intimidate our staff we will follow all the legal processes in terms of dispute process.
