Union members at Medscheme, which administers Bonitas and Parmed medical aids, went on a pay strike yesterday.

The National Education, Health and Allied Workers' Union said negotiators reached a deadlock in pay talks in January.

The company stuck to a 5percent increase in response to the union's demand of a 15percent raise.

The strike would affect all users of the schemes, the union said. - Sapa
