JOHANNESBURG – Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (Popcru) will be marching to all departments in the criminal justice sector in Pretoria on Friday to highlight a number of grievances.

The union says the demands of members have been ignored by government for too long.

Some of these issues include restructuring the South African Police Service and bringing an end to police killings.

The union's Dloze Matooane says: “We urge society to join the Popcru march in that the workers in the criminal justice sector actually receive the necessary attention with regard to their grievances which will be in the interests of all, including ordinary members of society.”

Meanwhile, the Liberated Metalworkers Union of South Africa (Limusa) said it fully supports the national march planned by Popcru on Friday.

Matooane says they fully understand and support the grievances of police, correctional and traffic officers who are members of their sister union.

“We will be joining Popcru on the ground as they submit their memorandum. We are fully behind them and support their grievances, and therefore we urge society to join the Popcru march in that the workers in the criminal justice sector actually receive the necessary attention with regards to their grievances.”
