COSATU calls on all its members to support Popcru's national march tomorrow in Pretoria
The Congress of South African Trade Unions is calling on all its members to join a planned national march tomorrow by our affiliated trade union the Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (POPCRU).
Tomorrow, Popcru members from across the country will be marching to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to demand that government respond to a litany of worker's grievances in the criminal justice cluster.
COSATU supports Popcru's demands and we are calling on government to take seriously the issues that are being raised by workers.
Police killings are posing a threat to the stability of this country and if we continue to allow poorly resourced workers to be maimed and killed, then we risk anarchy.
Government needs to speedily finalise the grading of PSA Appointees levels and of shift patterns. We also want the payment of all outstanding Occupation Specific Dispensation (OSD) in Correctional services including the resolution and finalisation of the promotion policy.
The march will take place as follows;
Gathering point: Old PUTCO Depot, Marabastad (Opposite Home Affairs)
Arrival Time: 07h00
Commencement Time: 09h00
Handing over of Memorandums: 14h00
The following routes will be utilised;
Strubben Street > right turn onto Thabo Sehume Street > Madiba Street > Union Buildings.
