parliamentBDLive reports that the National Education Health and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu) on Thursday called an end to its strike at Parliament following discussions with management facilitated by the CCMA.  

Nehawu members went on an illegal strike last Tuesday, in protest against the suspensions of their colleagues and to call for the resignation of Gengezi Mgidlana, Parliament’s secretary.  The end of the strike sees the union making various compromises as Parliamentary staff members belonging to the union returned to duty at the legislature.  As part of Parliament’s "no work, no pay" policy, the matter of salary deductions relating to last year’s strike remain under discussion.  However, union leaders who were suspended will now return to work and those facing disciplinary proceedings for walking out of a staff meeting have been let off with a written warning.
