EC doctors strike over no payment
30 May 2012
Eastern Cape doctors have gone on a strike after not being paid for six months.
The National Union of Metalworkers held a protest outside the Nelson Mandela Academic hospital in Mthatha on Tuesday.
NUM also said they will support more than seven-thousand doctors who have been working for free since the beginning of the year.
The province’s Department of Health spokesman Sizwe Kupelo says they are working to resolve the technical issue that has prevented the payment of doctors.
