Many forensic pathology workers have been on a go-slow for weeks now.

Nehawu claims its members aren't on strike, but are merely doing the work they have been hired to do.

At the same time, the DA says the government is too soft on striking employees.

It's urging authorities to obtain an urgent court order compelling them to return to work.
