Johannesburg - The Democratic Nursing Organisation of SA (Denosa) has reached deadlock in wage negotiations with Netcare [JSE:NTC], the union said on Monday.

Denosa was demanding a 13% wage increase across the board, said union spokesperson Asanda Fongqo.

The nurses were also requesting monetary recognition of post-graduate qualifications and a review of entry level salaries for all categories.

"Denosa wishes to emphasise that Netcare continues to generate massive profits through nurses... they are currently paying between 10% to 30% less than the public sector," Fongqo said.

Denosa members working at Netcare should "gear themselves to fight for what is due to them".

Peter Warrener, human resources director at Netcare, responded that the negotiation process was underway.

"We remain hopeful of a mutually beneficial resolution to the wage negotiations," he said.
