POPCRU to do a site inspection at the open filed where the National Traffic Police Unit members are dumped by RTMC

11 December 2017

Following today's meeting with the aggrieved National Traffic Police Unit members working for the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC), the Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (POPCRU) will be doing a site inspection of the apparent open space area in Midrand that they have been dumped in.

From our understanding, this open site has no ablution facilities, does not have health and safety facilities, is not habitable and subjects members to inhumane conditions.

Both male and female members have to change their clothing in cars as there are no rooms. These are the same people who are expected to work long hours throughout the festive season in ensuring our roads are safe, and yet they have been reduced to mere objects devoid of dignity by their bosses.

All these uniformed National Traffic Police Unit members have been halted the right to enter into the Eco-Park premises, and are subjected to meet daily in an open field without any form of ablution facilities, therefore creating a health hazard.

These members have since struggled to work on applications, leave forms, payslips and inquiries due to the nature of area they are subjected to.

The 1st Deputy President of POPCRU, Cde Khehla Masemola will be leading a POPCRU delegation to the inspection, and is to address as follows;

Date: Tuesday, 12 December 2017
Time: 10h00am
Place: Open field outside SANRAL offices, Midrand

Media is hereby invited.

Issued by POPCRU on 11/12/2017
