19 September 2014

 
Mayoral Committee member for the City of Cape Town JP Smith said he hasn’t yet been able to see the statement issued by Cosatu but understand that it is with regards to the officer Nkomo who was dismissed for insubordination.

She was dismissed because she broke the law. It was necessary for us take action within the law as the impound of the perpetrators vehicle was in fact illegal.

JP Smith said lets be clear Cape Town is the only city where we have been able to bring our road fatality rate down.

“Cosatu would be much better served to pick a fight with other provinces where the rate of road fatalities and road safety is of a much far worse standard Smith added.

The Western Cape Department of Health on Monday said over the weekend its Emergency Centres across the province were once again under pressure with a total of 4 745 patients, and only 24% of the patients were deemed emergency cases. 

Provincial Deputy Director of Communications Mark van der Heever said when less than urgent cases flood the emergency centres, cause a reduction in efficiency of both the emergency service and routine medical care.

Van de Heever added that those people with minor issues should be presenting to the nearest day hospital which is opened 24 hours just to relive some of the pressure that we are experiencing at our emergency centres.

“If we take away the people not in need of emergency care, then that will free up additional time and our doctors and staff can basically perform adequate job functions without looking after people, who are not seriously ill.” Van de Heever added.

A formal agreement was signed on Monday which will govern the conditions of employment in the industry.

“This year’s clothing industry wage dispute has now finally been resolved, averting a possible national strike of 80 000 clothing workers Kriel added.

At the heart of the dispute was not simply wage increases, but a critical decision that Sactwu had not made to either have a level playing field between all employers in the industry or to give some relief to compliant members represented by Amsa through a new wage model which was agreed upon through these negotiations Baard added.
