NEHAWU Western Cape To Embark On A Public Health Sector Campaign Demonstration

Monday May 23, 2022

The National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union [NEHAWU] in the Western Cape will embark on a public health sector campaign demonstration on Tuesday 24th May 2022.

The demonstration is convened to push back against the austerity measures meted by the Western Cape Provincial Government, which have resulted in shortage of staff in public health, slow service delivery to communities and the non-filling of funded vacant posts. The failure to fill funded vacant posts has led to members of society being forced to wait in long queues, and at times having to sleep in floors in other cases.

The union will use the demonstration to submit a memorandum calling for an end to outsourcing, absorption of Community Health Workers, abandonment of the Western Cape plan to close clinics in Working Class areas, and better handling of Emergency Medical Services [EMS] matters including but not limited to ensuring safety of workers.

The demonstration will take place as follows:

Date: Tuesday May 24, 2022

Time: 11am

Venue: 4 Dorp Street, Cape Town

Members of the media are invited to attend and cover the public health sector campaign demonstration.
