strike thumb medium85 85eNCA reports that 10111 emergency call centre workers will continue with the strike they initiated in July and aim to march to the Union Buildings on 16 October to demand a review of their salary grading.  

“Taking into account the work that these people do, it is more dangerous than the work that is being done by other call centre members who are earning more than what they are earning,” SA Policing Union (Sapu) president Mpho Kwinika said.  He went on to indicate:  “A case study was done and when it was concluded, the police had to review salary grading from level five to seven, which was feasible and doable.  But when general Phiyega was out of office, those who came in felt that they would no longer implement.”  Sapu also said plans to reduce police numbers would only exacerbate the crime situation in places like Phillipi in Cape Town.
