Members of the National Education Health and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu) and the Public Servants Association (PSA) have been on strike since last Wednesday.  Union members have accepted a 7.3% wage increase, but they are demanding other benefits such as housing allowances and increases in medical aid subsidies.  Nehawu's Khaya Xaba confirmed that a new offer was on the table and said:  “We’re taking that offer back to our members, they will give us the go ahead on whether to accept it and whether we should end the strike.”
