Many health care staff and other public sector workers in East London were on strike today (6 March 2023).
With placards in hand, staff marched outside the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) office in Vincent, hoping that their request will be favourably met by seniors.
“This is a national strike we are participating in and some of our demands are for a wage increase and housing allowance,” told one health care worker.
A Union representative was not available for comment. Workers proceeded peacefully into the early evening.
