sapu thumb medium80 79ANA reports that the SA Policing Union (Sapu) on Friday announced the temporary suspension of the 10111 call centre strike that was expected to have continued at the weekend.  

Sapu general secretary Oscar Skommere said the strike was temporarily suspended to give negotiations led by the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA), a chance.  “Sapu will attend the Monday CCMA meeting with an open mind.  The suspension of the strike must not be viewed by management as a way of us giving in to their arrogance,” Skommere stated.  He added the union was communicating with its members about returning to their posts on Saturday morning.  The 24-hour crime-reporting 10111 call centre deals with emergencies and complaints from the public.  When it announced the strike, which started on Tuesday, Sapu said its 10111 members were among the lowest-paid government call centre workers.
