10111 emergency call-centre strike resumes

The SA Policing Union (Sapu) and the SA Police Service (SAPS) had previously agreed to CCMA mediation, resulting in the strike being temporarily postponed. Sapu is demanding salary increases recommended by a task team set up by suspended police commissioner Riah Phiyega in 2013.

Sapu general secretary Oscar Skommere said: "The union has sought an intervention at ministerial level but with no result. Therefore we are resuming the strike with immediate effect and the next phase of the industrial action will involve action by all 10111 operators and all Public Servants Association personnel in the police department." Sapu accused SAPS management of delaying the speedy resolution of this issue by rejecting any proposal tabled by the CCMA commissioner.

The union said if no progress has been made by 11 August, it would call for unions under the SA Federation of Trade Unions (Saftu) to stand in solidarity with it.
