The Democratic Nursing Organization of South Africa acknowledges and commends all Doctors who heeded to the call from the leadership and society at large to return to work.
DENOSA spokesperson Asanda Fongqo says this decision illustrates that they have not abandoned their professional convictions and duty to serve society as alleged in certain sections of the media.
“It is for this reason that we find it unfortunate that in the middle of the process of them returning to work the department threatens to dismiss some of them, says Fongqo.
“We therefore appeal to the department to withdraw the dismissals thus giving the bargaining process a chance to bring the OSD matter to its logical conclusion.’’
We further reiterate that those Doctors that have not yet returned back to work should also heed to the call and duly do so, added Fongqo.
DENOSA further stresses the significance of unity amongst workers.
