Health unions sign OSD deal

2009-08-12 00:11
Johannesburg - Health unions representing doctors in the public sector signed the Occupational Specific Dispensation (OSD) agreement with government on Tuesday, SABC radio news reported.

This brought to an end the drawn-out talks with the sector that led to doctors going on strike.

However, the Democratic Nurses' Association (Denosa) said a reviewed offer of certain salary scales was in the pipeline. The union said without this undertaking it would not have signed the agreement.

Meanwhile, there was still no OSD with teachers, engineers and technicians in the public sector.

Last month, the SA Medical Association (Sama) doctors rejected the government's R1bn OSD salary increase offer at the time.
