Nehawu members vow to remain at Union Buildings until govt responds to demands

Nehawu members

Members affiliated to health workers union Nehawu insist that they will remain outside the Union Buildings until the government responds to their demands.

They want an 8% wage hike for front line workers fighting COVID-19 and better working conditions.

Nehawu’s national leadership said that they were sick and tired of the government’s silence and wanted to be taken seriously by President Cyril Ramaphosa.

The union’s deputy president Mike Shingange: “We are protesting and demanding that the president responds to our memorandum that we submitted on 3 September and we want him to enforce that his government protects the front line workers and also that they implement Resolution 1 of 2018.”

Nehawu submitted a memorandum of demands to Ramaphosa’s office two weeks ago but said that it had yet to hear back from the president.
