Date: 2012-04-30

The National Health & Allied Workers Union (NEHAWU), acting on behalf of striking employees proposed the following:



  • That the strike be immediately called-off and striking employees to return to work on or before Tuesday 1st May  2012

  • SANParks suspends the contemplated retrenchment for operational requirements; and

  • That SANParks commits to a meeting to address grievances which led to the strike.


SANParks responded as follows:



  • NEHAWU’s proposal to call-off the strike is accepted and that striking employees should return to work unconditionally

  • SANParks shall call-off the contemplated retrenchment for operational requirements

  • SANParks commits to meet striking employees and or their representatives in order to discuss issues that led to the strike; which are not related to matters of mutual interest, but matters of rights; and

  • SANParks further committed to share relevant information at the meeting in order to demonstrate that the issues raised by striking employees are part of on-going discussions with recognized unions.


William Mabasa, HOD: Public Relations and Communication, KNP said that affected employees will not be victimized or intimidated as a consequence to their participation in a protected strike. Acts of misconduct will be dealt with in accordance with the Disciplinary Code and Procedure.


The parties agreed to a meeting on Thursday 17th May 2012.
