Netcare workers want to strike

 

Johannesburg - Health workers from 11 Netcare [JSE:NTC] hospitals in five provinces embarked on a full-blown strike on Wednesday following a wage dispute, the Health and Other Services Personnel Trade Union of SA (Hospersa) said.

"We did not want to strike and last week we started picketing, but we've since heard no word from management. This means that they are now taking us for granted," Hospersa's general secretary Noel Desfontaines said.

Workers from two hospitals in KwaZulu-Natal were protesting outside their hospitals by about 8:40 on Wednesday.

Workers from four other provinces were expected to join in the strike.

The union, representing nurses and administration workers, wanted a 12% salary increase while the company was prepared to pay 8.5%.

Affected hospitals were the N17 Hospital in Gauteng; St Augustine's, Parklands, Umhlanga and Alberlito hospitals in KwaZulu-Natal; Kyler and Greenacres hospitals in the Eastern Cape; Ferncrest Hospital in the North West; and Pelenomi and Kroonstad hospitals in the Free State.

Hospersa declared a dispute with Netcare management last week.
