PINETOWN’S St Mary’s Hospital has two weeks to respond to the Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa’s (Denosa) salary increment demands. Last week, nurses under the banner of Denosa, and general workers staged a picket outside the hospital to highlight some of their problems. These included non-payment of this year’s salary increase as agreed. “At the time nurses’ salaries are not meeting day-to-day costs of living,” said Lekhoathi. The 200-bed state-aided hospital has not increased the salaries since April this year.
