unisaTimesLIVE reports that the nationwide strike by the National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu) at the University of SA (Unisa) entered its third day on Thursday.  

According to the union, some buildings were not compliant with occupational health and safety standards.  Unisa said its staff were unable to enter campuses across the country.  Staff did gain access in Durban, but were only able to offer limited services.  The university urged stakeholders to continue conducting their business with the university online, where applicable.  “Reports received by the university are that students wishing to enter campuses to prepare for their exams are still able to do so without much hindrance,” Unisa advised.  Examinations at neutral venues and those taking place at Unisa facilities were also continuing unhindered.  Talks between university management and Nehawu were apparently continuing.
