KNYSNA/PLETT HERALD Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) largest affiliate – the National Health, Education and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu) – on Monday threw its weight behind the government’s National Health Insurance (NHI) Bill, pledging to make submissions to parliamentary hearings on the legislation. Parliament has extended public submissions and comments on the NHI Bill from individuals and organisations until November 29.
