Swaziland: Unpaid Nurses and Staff Strike

Nurses and support staff at a major hospital in Swaziland walked off work on Wednesday (26 October 2016) because they had not been paid.

It happened at Good Shepherd Hospital in Siteki.

Management blamed the Swazi Government which had not passed on money for salaries.

Nurses and support staff resolved to stay away from wards pending payment. Senior staff, supervisors and doctors had to take care of patients. Last month (September 2016), salaries were also delayed and the workers were paid after taking similar strike action.
