Sapu vows to fight Saps interdict
Police management have taken Sapu to the Labour Court to have the ongoing 10111 call centre strike interdicted.
JOHANNESBURG - The South African Policing Union (Sapu) says it is ready to fight a South African Police Service (Saps) court interdict.
Police management have taken Sapu to the Labour Court to have the ongoing 10111 call centre strik e interdicted.
This follows allegations that non-striking workers were being intimidated.
Workers affiliated to Sapu have been accused of throwing objects and damaging state property during a picket at the police headquarters in Midrand on Thursday.
They're demanding the same salaries as their colleagues at other government departments.
Sapu says the police's claims that they were violent cannot be proven.
“We need to have a thorough investigation to establish whether the members they say are implicated are our members who are striking.”
