protestBusinessLive reports that cash-in-transit security officers are planning to march to the Gauteng legislature on Tuesday to call on the government to take action to help them combat a spate of cash heists.  

Although the march was initially planned for Monday‚ it was postponed to Tuesday.  Hlasinyane Motaung‚ speaking on behalf of the Motor Transport Workers Union‚ said:  "They must improve‚ standardise and regulate the vehicles… Our people are being killed in these robberies."  Unions in the sector are also demanding that cash-in-transit workers be given more powerful weapons to defend themselves and match the firepower of the attackers.  Participants will meet in Jorissen Street opposite the University of the Witwatersrand and will proceed to the Gauteng legislature in the city centre from 9am.  The march is also supported by the Federation of Unions of SA (Fedusa).
