The Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (Popcru) plans to go to court to stop the current restructuring process and the enforcement of the so-called ‘Back to Basics’ programme.
Popcru is strongly opposed to the restructuring announced by Acting National Police Commissioner Khomotso Phahlane last year.
Popcru spokesperson Richard Mamabolo on Thursday said the union would take legal action to reverse all the restructuring and appointments made thus far.
Listen to the full conversation from The Midday Report with Stephen Grootes:
The restructuring is in contravention of the signed collective agreement at the Safety & Security Sectoral Bargaining Council.— Richard Mamabolo, Popcru spokesperson
It states there should be meaningful consultation and engagement before a decision is taken on whatever matter.— Richard Mamabolo, Popcru spokesperson
The basis of the court action is to reverse all the restructuring and appointments that have been made thus far until we have engagement to reach a common decision.— Richard Mamabolo, Popcru spokesperson
