Nehawu, Parly management set to return to negotiation table

CAPE TOWN - The National Education, Health and Allied Workers' Union (Nehawu) and Parliament's management are set to return to the negotiation table in an attempt to resolve outstanding disputes.

The parties reached an agreement last year to end a strike over performance bonuses.

However, on Friday, the trade union went back to the CCMA, claiming some workers did not receive their bonus pay-outs due to their ratings being reduced by their line managers.

Nehawu's Sthembiso Tembe says a meeting has been scheduled for this week.

“We are not going to accept anything short of the agreement we signed, which means all employees who qualified for performance bonuses should be paid; and all employees who qualified for increases must be also paid.”
