10111 staff resumes toyi-toying over salaries
The SA Police Union (Sapu) general secretary Oscar Skommere says they have resumed with the strike at 10111 because they've been fighting a losing battle with police management since it temporarily suspended the strike.
He says they suspended the strike with the hope that CCMA's intervention will yield positive results, but they were wrong.
For the past two weeks we've been battling with Saps management ... Popcru was also not willing to accept any suggestion that was put forward.Oscar Skommere, Sapu general secretary
We felt that these guys are really playing games which is the reason why we decided to go back to the strike.Oscar Skommere, Sapu general secretary
Skommere says the process Saps wants to take to resolve the issues is going to impact negatively on the employees.
He says Saps wants to change the terms of employment for the call centre agents from Public Servant Personnel to Police Act employees under Saps.
With the Police Act, employees will have to re-apply and be assessed, but most will not qualify in terms of the requirements as those terms were not there when they were first hired as call centre agents, says Skommere.
