The general and Police Minister Nathi Nhleko briefed the media on plans to be implemented this year.
Phahlane announced in Parliament last year that he would be rolling out a back-to-basics campaign which included the restructuring of some positions in police management.
Popcru claimed that Phahlane was in contravention of bargaining agreements that require all stakeholders to be consulted before any restructuring.
Phahlane says the union was consulted extensively.
“We approached the secretary of council and had sessions that were convened when restructuring was presented to Popcru representatives.”
An application by Popcru to stop the restructuring was dismissed in the Labour Court this week.
