protestEWN reports that Department of Health employees in Pretoria have entered their second month working on the street and there is still no indication whether government will arrange an alternative venue for them.  

Workers affiliated to the Public Servants Association (PSA) stopped working in the Civitas Building after it emerged it was only 21% compliant with safety requirements.  The matter has now reached the labour court.  The PSA’s Tahir Maepa observed:  “We went to the extent of even going out ourselves to look at available office spaces.  We found three buildings where we could be accommodated temporary, but the Department of Public Works basically refused to give the Department of Health an alternative accommodation.”
