File: Workers are demanding an eight percent salary increase but NSFAS is pleading poverty.
JOHANNESBURG - The National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union are convening a special National Executive Committee on Saturday.
The trade union will discuss the upcoming strike in all its sectors.
This follows a National Day of Action earlier this month.
It submitted a memorandum of demands to the National Assembly speaker and all Premiers, except the Western Cape.
The union is calling on the government to implement salary increases and ensure adequate protective COVID-19 measures for workers.
The president had seven days to respond.
