Business as usual at licensing offices after Samwu strike, says JMPD

The Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) says operations at licencing stations should be back to normal on Tuesday.

JMPD Spokesperson Wayne Minaar on Tuesday said that the majority of staff is back on duty following strike action by Samwu members over salary disputes.

This follows Monday's court ruling declaring a strike by Samwu members both “illegal and unprotected”.

Listen to the full conversation from the Midday Report:

According to Minaar, centers will on be affected on Thursday 31 December, as staff close early at 10am for New Year's Eve.

He added that workers that have failed to return to work may face possible disciplinary action.
