Union Buildings March: Unemployed Health Workers Protest for Jobs



Unemployed health workers

Unemployed health workers, including doctors, nurses, and dietitians, plan to march to the Union Buildings on Monday to demand action on their joblessness. Dr Mumtaz Emeran, representing the unemployed doctor’s task team, highlighted the need to present their concerns directly to the Presidency through a memorandum of demands, as reported by Jacaranda FM.

The march reflects growing frustration over the ongoing lack of employment opportunities in the healthcare sector. Despite appeals to the government over the past nine weeks, calls for hiring healthcare workers in the public sector have been ignored.

The march will start at 9 am at the intersection of Madiba and Kgosi Mampuru Street in Pretoria. To ensure safety, the Tshwane Metro Police will monitor the march route and surrounding streets.

Participants will gather at the starting point before moving along Madiba Street toward the Union Buildings. Affected streets include Thabo Sehume Street, Lilian Ngoyi Street, Sisulu Street, and Steve Biko Street.


Motorists should use alternative routes like Struben Street, Johannes Ramokhoase Street, Francis Baard Street, and Stanza Bopape Street to avoid traffic disruptions.
