This serves to advise the members and structures of Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (DENOSA) that the negotiations have reached the dispute level.
On 6 October 2022, DENOSA and other COSATU unions filed for the joint dispute referral at Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC). This application will invoke the conciliation process in PSCBC.
This happened after COSATU unions in public sector reported in a joint meeting held on 6 October 2022 that their members are rejecting the final offer of the employer.
In the meantime, DENOSA will embark on consultation process through its constitutional structures to unpack the current processes taking place at PSCBC and the possible end results.
We will keep the members and structures updated timeously as the processes unfold.
