ambulanceEWN reported on Tuesday that emergency medical services (EMS) workers in the Eastern Cape remained on strike.  

The illegal industrial action has forced emergency measures to be implemented.  Members of EMS services downed tools claiming that they were owed back pay, amongst other grievances.  The provincial health department's Lwandile Sicwetsha said:  "The MEC is disappointed that workers have embarked on an illegal strike as it's an essential service.  Internal processes will be taken for on-duty staff involved in this illegal strike."
