Nehawu will strike until demands are met
26 September 2011
Health worker union Nehawu expects other unions to join its strike.
Around two-thousand medical laboratory workers downed tools this morning.
The strike may delay sample tests and affect critical and lifesaving operations.
Union members have brought their increase demand down from 15- to nine-percent. They also want a two-thousand-300-Rands medical aid benefit.
National Health Laboratory Services is offering a six-and-a-half-percent increase and two-thousand-100-Rands for medical aid.
