protestPretoria News reports that on Monday morning employees of the 10111 emergency call centre were slowly starting to gather at the Pretoria Art Museum ahead of their march to the Union Buildings to hand over a memorandum of demands.  

The march, led by the SA Policing Union’s (Sapu’s) Tumelo Mogodiseng, was due to commence at 12pm, with about 500 employees expected to take part.  They are demanding salary upgrades to raise them to the same level as other government call centre workers at the Department of Home Affairs, SA Social Security Agency, SA Revenue Services (Sars) and the presidential hotline, amongst others.  The salary upgrades were recommended in 2013 by a task team set up by former police commissioner Riah Phiyega, but never implemented.  The strike has been on since 18 July this year.
