Good Shepherd doesn't recognise SWADNU
SITEKI - Good Shepherd Hospital is reportedly refusing to recognise the Swaziland Democratic Nurses Union (SWADNU).
The union is said to be contemplating taking the matter to the Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration Commission (CMAC).
Failure by the hospital to recognise the union is said to be the reason why nurses at the medical facility have not participated in the nurses’ strike which began last week Wednesday.
SWADNU Lubombo Chairperson, Thandolwethu Bhembe said: "The administration has been postponing the recognition since last year. This is a sign that they are refusing to recognise the union hence we are now contemplating reporting the matter to CMAC," said Bhembe.
He said the failure of the hospital to acknowledge the union is the main reason why nurses at the hospital have been working despite the national strike by nurses.
Good Shepherd Hospital Administrator Dumisile Simelane said she was not aware of the matter.
"What I know is that nurses are working and everything is normal at the hospital," she said.
Attempts to get comment from Good Shepherd Human Resources Manager, Mcebo Xaba, failed as he was reportedly out of office.
