Frans Ledwaba, General Secretary of the JMPD officers has confirmed that JMPD is going on a strike today - just hours before new year celebrations.
Ledwaba spoke to Africa Melane, saying that the recent strike, that was called off, was by the licensing workers. He said that the issues are different from the ones they are going to strike on today.
We issued a notice to JMPD employers on the 24th December to say we are going on a protected strike today on the issues of allowances and salary progression.— Frans Ledwaba, General Secretary of the JMPD
JMPD management has said that they did not receive notification of a strike.
