The management of Queen Mamohato Memorial hospital (QMMH) – Tšepong issued a final ultimatum to nurses and nurse assistants who have went on strike to immediately report to work.
In a statement issued by the hospital’s Human Resources Manager Thenjiwe Dlangamandla said should the employees not report to work as scheduled, there will be no other alternative but to take serious action including dismissal where appropriate.
This comes after the labour court order of 24February 2021 instructed the employees to return to their duties.
Dlangamandla further states that it is the intention of Tšepong management that any outstanding grievances be resolved amicably in a lawful and mutually respectful manner that is not illegal.
Meanwhile the president of Lesotho Nurses Association (LNA) Raphael Tlali told Kingdom Digital News that they cannot comment on the statement issued Tšepong as the matter is now before the courts of law.
It has been over three weeks since QMMH nurses and nurses assistants went on strike demanding their salaries grievances heard.
On the 2nd of February 2021 Lesotho nurses association (LNA) president Raphael Tlali said nurses and nurses assistants will continue with their duties as soon as their concerns are resolved.
