Nehawu reaches deal with IEC, averts strike action
A potential strike by permanent Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) workers belonging to the National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu) has been averted.
Nehawu and the commission have reached an agreement after two days of negotiations.
Workers had threatened not to report for duty on Wednesday, which may have disrupted national elections.
The organisation raised concerns of alleged victimisation by IEC management as well as issues around wages.
IEC Deputy CEO Mawethu Mosery says an agreement has been signed.
The agreement allows us to deal with the four substantive issues which relate to management processes in our environment, particularly the delays on implementing some of the proposed restructuring of our salary packages and job creation. We will work with them to deal with the details thereof and put time frames onto that.Mawethu Mosery, Deputy CEO - Independent Electoral Commission
