NEHAWU Statement On The SARS Strike

Wednesday March 27, 2019

The National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union (NEHAWU) has understood the mandate of the South African Revenue Services (SARS) from its inception which amongst others include that SARS must also inspire to contribute to the building of fiscal citizenship reflected by a law abiding society which its employees constitute an integral part of the same society referred to. We further understood that employees of SARS are located at the point of production to ensure such mandate is realised but a key question to be asked from SARS management, government is how such a mandated will be realised when the same employees’ contributions are not valued and not regarded as critical in ensuring optimal compliance with Tax, Customs and Excise legislation.

NEHAWU has been instrumental in registering the hard won gains for ordinary worker within the institution (SARS). Indeed, our struggles and efforts have led to a more progressive transformation programme at South African Revenue Services (SARS) in line with Employment Equity Plan, Development and Appointment of Women to Strategic positions and dismantling the bulling culture from South African Revenue Services (SARS) management. We further fought for better Salaries and Grade Anomalies that have been in existence for past decades. These gains created healthy, friendly and stable working environment for the employees for some years.

NEHAWU Has Called Off The TVET And CET College National Strike

Wednesday February 27, 2019

Members Of NEHAWU CET and TVET Strike February 2019

The National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union [NEHAWU] has called off the Technical and Vocational Education and Training [TVET] and Community Education and Training [CET] national strike action after signing a settlement agreement with the Department of Higher Education and Training [DHET]. The settlement agreement was signed at midday after marathon negotiations that started on Monday morning and concluded yesterday evening.

This settlement represents a victory for our members who have been marginalised by the department ever since the migration took place in 2015. As NEHAWU, we want to applaud our members and members in general for remaining resolute in their fight for better salaries, benefits and improved working conditions. Our strike has been a huge success because of the resilience shown by our members in the picket lines in all the colleges across the country.
