gautengSABC News reports that according to Gauteng Pathology Services, the strike of more than two week at the Germiston mortuary, east of Johannesburg, has ended.  

Earlier this month employees at the facility went on strike due to lack of protective gear and safety equipment.  Workers from other mortuaries across Gauteng had to be called in to help deal with the backlog.  Acting Gauteng Pathology Services CEO Mosou Morule confirmed that they have reached a settlement with the employees who went on strike.  He said the complaints about the lack of adequate safety equipment had been addressed.  “They were given the equipment and they are now fully back at work and at present there are no backlogs.  The only backlog that could be there would not be due to the strike but due to the usual high numbers of bodies received at the Germiston government mortuary,” Morule observed.
