Estate Agency Affairs Board strikers return to work

The four-day industrial strike over salary increases by 35 staff members of the Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB) in Johannesburg has ended, according to a press release issued by the EAAB today.

Welcoming the decision by the National Education Health and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu) members, Nomonde Mapetla CEO of the EAAB said the workers had returned to work at noon today.

The union members had engaged in industrial action since Friday afternoon about salary increases.

"We are delighted that the union has finally accepted that the representations made in the expert report we commissioned about salary levels are valid and fair. We welcome the union's decision that its members should return to work today, under the same conditions that were applicable prior to the strike," said Mapetla.

Mapetla said that EAAB was satisfied that stakeholders had not experienced any untoward inconvenience during the strike and believed that the operations of the Board had continued to function smoothly.

"Now that the strike is resolved I am looking forward to working with staff and stakeholders of the EAAB to provide an effective and improved service to the property industry," she said.

Sometimes it’s because our circumstances have changed, and we’re taking care of elderly parents or relatives. Sometimes, it’s just because we want a property that reflects the financial status our hard work has won.
