SAPS heads to court over 10111 call centre strike intimidation
The police claim the 10111 call centre workers are intimidating and threating non-striking employees.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Police Services will on Friday morning bring an application to the Labour Court to halt the South African Policing Union (Sapu) from intimidating non-striking 10111 call centre agents.
The strike intensified on Thursday with staff demonstrating outside the police headquarters in Midrand.
They're demanding that the same salaries as their colleagues at other government departments.
The police now claim that the workers are intimidating and threating non-striking employees.
Spokesperson Sally de Beer said: “Yesterday it escalated with them hurling objects and damaging state vehicles.”
Earlier this month, talks between Sapu and police management reached a deadlock.
