Administrative staff from the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) said they have no intention of ending their ongoing strike until their demands are met.

Workers downed tools earlier this week demanding a 9.5 percent wage increase and R1,500 medical aid contribution. Employers have offered a 7 percent hike and R1,000 for medical aid.

National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union’s (Nehawu) Nkululeko Ntloko said union members were locked out on July 20.

“…As the Nehawu leadership, our door is open for negotiations. We are waiting for the employer to come to us and say…let’s sit down,” he added.
