Several SARS offices remain closed due to strikes, Nehawu says – SABC News

The National Education Health and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu) has reminded the public that several SARS offices will remain closed Wednesday as their members continue official strike action.

Nehawu and the Public Servants Association are calling for a 7 percent wage increase across the board.

NEHAWU President Mike Shingange says: “When we started the strike announcement last weekend, SARS offered 1.3% plus some tips, which the workers didn’t agree to, and that’s why the strike is going on. There are marches to the National Treasury and from headquarters to the SARS offices.

“It will have an impact on the public. We also plan to ensure that we divert our workforce from the ports of entry – the ones that deal with counterfeit goods. Obviously and unfortunately the public will be affected, but we are not the only ones who will take responsibility for this. We have to blame those who provoked the workers by offering a zero percent hike in the first place.”

NEHAWU informs the media about the upcoming SARS strike:

PSA marches to SARS headquarters

Meanwhile, the Public Servants Association (PSA) says its members, who are employed by the South Africa Revenue Service, will march to SARS headquarters in Gauteng and the National Treasury.

PSA spokesman Reuben Maleka says: “Today we will be marching in Pretoria in full blown strike – going to Treasury Department – ​​and from there going to SARS headquarters in Brooklyn. There will be industrial action in all provinces – including all ports of entry such as OR Tambo Airport and the Maseru Bridge. All of these will be shut down completely.”
