Members of trade union Nehawu have given North West leadership 24 hours to respond to the trade union’s demands or face a shutdown of services.
Public servants plan to embark on march in the North West over the collapse of government in the province.
The union has led a go-slow which has led to the distributions of services, especially at health care facilities.
Nehawu spokesperson Khaya Xaba says the union is frustrated by the slow pace of dealing with their concerns.
