Media Release: HOSPERSA strike action called off
02 August 2017
South African National Parks (SANParks) management today confirmed that all their employees who embarked on a strike action and are members of Health and Other Service Personnel Trade Union of South Africa (HOSPERSA) are back at their posts. The union sent official correspondence to SANParks formally announcing the unconditional end of strike action by their members last night, 1 August 2017.
SANParks Head of Communications Janine Raftopoulos welcomed the union’s decision. “We are glad that the protected strike by some members of HOSPERSA has ended and those who participated are back at work. A prolonged strike would have meant salary losses for our colleagues and more hardships during this tough economic climate. We would like to extend our gratitude to all the SANParks employees who ensured day to day operations in our Parks were not disrupted and thank our visitors for being patient during this period.” concluded Raftopoulos.
