Protesting Nehawu members call on President Ramaphosa to step in over unpaid salaries – My Crush Live News

A group of members of the National Education, Health and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu) are protesting outside the Nasrec Expo Center calling on President Cyril Ramaphosa to intervene in their ongoing protest over unpaid salaries.

Nehawu president Michael Shingange says they want to raise awareness of the unfair treatment of their workers following the African National Congress’s (ANC) continued refusal to pay their wages and welfare fund.

Nehawu says the ANC has once again failed to honor and fulfill its contractual obligations by paying workers’ salaries and contributing to their medical care.

They say the ANC had previously made commitments that this saga of late salary payments would not happen again, but the opposite has happened.

Shingange says the Ministry of Health is failing them. “They’re coming here to tell the president, we just want our answer. You cannot continue as if nothing is happening and ignore workers’ rights to protest. Of course, it’s not a good scene, but that’s not our problem. Our problem is that we need to be heard, and all the leaders have gathered here.

“The cost of living affects us until we are paid and our welfare fund is paid. We are here to acknowledge all the delegates who are here. All we want is for the president to step in.
