2011-12-19 18:32

Johannesburg - Security personnel have returned to work at two Gauteng hospitals after a labour dispute, the health department said on Monday.

"I can assure the communities that security personnel at Dr George Mukhari and Bertha Gxowa hospitals is now functioning," spokesperson Simon Zwane said in a statement. The guards at these hospitals were embroiled in a dispute with their employers over bonuses and salary payments last week.

Zwane could not immediately reveal if the dispute had been resolved.

He said the department was committed to paying service providers and payments were improving.

"The department has brought relief to different service providers by paying out over R600m this month.

"We will work with the provincial treasury and try to pay even more service providers in the near future," he said.

      Oh Precious, sweet innocent precious.... if your spelling wasn't so pathetic one could forgive you your lack of common sense. Sadly, Precious, you are clearly ill-informed. What I really find amusing is that YOU assume the reference is to black people. Are you aware that indians, coloureds and well as whites use government hospitals?? No?? Well just shows you, neh!!

      @ Precious, it is steal lovie, not steel. Steel is used for manufacturing things..like buildings and...hospitals, handcuffs etc.

      Precious, you're doing a very bad job of impersonation. Some of us are bright enough to spot it. Go play in the traffic.

      @ Precious.. Yeh you make a lot of babies.. some land up in trash cans, or in dumpsters or even in drains or in the veld under a newspaper. Then half of the other babies are H.I.V. or Aids. You only steal the healthy ones. I dont know if you were born this dumb or whether at some state you got brain damaged.. For Petes sake.. Pleas say something intelligent even if it is only "Duh Duh"

      Precious - 2011-12-20 00:41

    Oh dear, another 'labour dispute'. Suppose they didn't want to work again but still want to earn a higher salary. What a joke! Go on strike, nobody will notice!
