The Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (Popcru) says it will give SAPS management 14 days to respond to its demands to adjust the salaries of administrative clerks.
At least 1 000 Popcru members are marching in Kimberley and Bloemfontein today. Popcru’s provincial secretary, Boitumelo Phelehu says some SAPS clerks are earning as little as R5 000 per month.
During the Free State leg of the protest provincial police commissioner, Kehla Sithole will receive a memorandum of demands.
Northern Cape MEC for safety, security and liaison, Patrick Mabilo will do the same in that province. Popcru claims the SAPS is the only government department which has failed to implement a 2011 agreement to adjust salaries and benefits of clerks on levels 1 to level 4.
