nupsawSABC News reports that around 100 community health workers affiliated to the National Union of Public Service and Allied Workers (Nupsaw) held a night vigil at the Gauteng Department of Health in Johannesburg.  

They were demanding their outstanding salaries since 2016 and insourcing so that they could be employed on a permanent basis.  Nupsaw national organiser Solly Malema indicated that in 2016 there had been an agreement that the workers would be contracted and back paid.  He said:  “The provincial Department of Health conducted verification.  They started a process of verification and back paying.  However plus or minus 300 community health workers were not verified to have worked and as a result they were not contracted and back paid…”  Malema added that then the dispute was about the verification process.
