The National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union [NEHAWU] in the Gauteng Province met with the Gauteng Department of Health as part of mapping a way forward in relation to the payment of outstanding bonuses.
We are elated to report that the employer has finally agreed to pay the outstanding bonuses for the 2016/17 financial year. On the 5th June 2018 a special multilateral meeting will be convened to further finalise the matter. A date of payment will be issued at that meeting, however, the Department has assured NEHAWU that payments will be made in the current month of June.
This is a victory for our members and workers which comes after NEHAWU ferociously pushed the Department to pay all qualifying workers their bonuses. As NEHAWU, we will continue to push their Department to respond comprehensively to the memorandum of demands submitted by the union on the 16th March 2018. Our members are highly incensed by the refusal by the Department to respond to the demands contained in the memorandum as they have an adverse effect on service delivery.
