Sapu is threatening to close down the 10111 call centres around the country unless their members working there get salary hikes.

The SA Police Union (Sapu) is threatening to close down the 10111 call centres around the country unless their call centre members are given salary increases.

These call centres are meant for emergency purposes as it can be quicker than visiting the nearest police station.

The move by the union could cause chaos as it would be difficult for people to report crime online in a country where the crime rate is high.

Midday Report host Stephen Grootes spoke to Sapu President Mpho Kwinika, who says they want salary increments.

Members from 10111 centres throughout the country, they are not paid same with their own peers in the public service.

People also call this centre when they need an ambulance and if it doesn’t work, it’s likely that people will die as a result.

The employer has never even shown any interest in trying to address the matter, so it cannot solely be the responsibility of the labour and its membership to make sure that South Africans get the best out of the people whom we are fighting for.
