Durban - The National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu) said on Monday it had resolved the dispute between its members and the Electoral Commission of South Africa (IEC) following 'marathon negotiations'.
IEC workers had threatened to strike on May 8, the day set aside for the country's general election.
"The national union has managed to push the employer to commit to the agreement that was reached at the Electoral Commission National Bargaining Forum (ECNBF) which directed the employer to implement the new organogram by 1 September 2019," said Nehawu in an emailed statement.
The parties had also agreed to relook at the recommendations of the "tools of trade" that were presented to the IEC by the tools of trade task team in July 2018, it said.
"Nehawu also raised sharply the victimisation of its members at IEC and as such parties have agreed on a process to address cases of members who have been victimised by management.
