The Congress of South African Trade Unions in the North West and DENOSA are worried about the critical challenges facing the community service nurses as they complete their studies.

At end of year Community services nurses are expected to perform their contract obligations with the Department of Health and later are told that there are no vacancies to be filled.

They are told to go seek jobs somewhere outside the North West.

COSATU Provincial secretary Solly Phetoe said we are calling for the employment of all the student nurses that have concluded their studies as well as those who are expected to conclude their studies by the end of June and the end of 2015.

Phetoe added that they have a responsibility to make sure that those workers when they are in the process of their studies they are allowed to do their work, they are allowed to do community service, they are allowed to do all their work in terms of their contract obligations, but they must also be paid.
