The IFP calls on the police, the Prisons Civil
Rights Union (Popcru) and the South African Police Union (SAPU)
to urgently honour the salary increases which are in line with
an agreement signed in 2011 for office workers in police
IFP spokesperson on Police, MP Velaphi Ndlovu
said "The unions have failed to look after its members'
interests. The union must urgently resolve this issue before any
legal court battles start. We also wonder why some workers have
received their salary increases but others have not".
Workers now realise that their union leaders
are not representing their interests effectively on this or
other matters, as most of them are uniformed police officers and
they are not necessarily affected by this process.
police management must implement the agreement which was signed
at the Safety and Security Sectoral Bargaining Council. This
issue has been dragging on for too long now; it must be settled"
The IFP will write to the minister of police
and the national police commissioner, requesting them to provide
answers as to why the process of implementing the salary
increase agreement and the issue of job grading have been
dragging for so long and when they will be implemented.
