The National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union [NEHAWU] on the 15thApril 2020 wrote to the General Secretary of the Public Service Co-ordinating Bargaining Council [PSCBC] requesting the council to urgently set down the conciliation meeting on the dispute referred by the national union on the 1st April 2020 on the non-implementation of PSCBC Resolution 1 of 2018 especially clause 3.3.
NEHAWU appreciates that today the council communicated the date of the conciliation which has been sat down from the 28th to 30th April 2020. Moreover, we appreciate the urgency applied by the council on this matter considering the disappointment and anger of our members for not getting their salary increase on the 15th April 2020 as stipulated in the agreement.
We will do everything in our power to fight government for reversing the gains of our members and disregarding binding collective bargaining agreements. NEHAWU will use all resources available at its disposal to defend its members against the onslaught by government. This is a fight we are not prepared to lose and government must brace itself for a relentless war in defence of our members and workers in general.
