The Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (POPCRU) provincial structures will be holding their respective provincial congresses over the period between the 14th of February and 16th of March 2022.
This is in line with Clause (14) of the union’s constitution, which among others gives effect to the implementation to decisions of the National Congress (NC), the Central Executive Committee (CEC) and the National Executive Committee (NEC).
Under the theme “32 Years Working Class Consciousness, Defending Workers Rights and Building a Self-Sustainable Union”, which is in line with the 9th POPCRU National Congress, the upcoming provincial congresses are expected to carry out the aims and objectives of the union with regard to the organisation of workers in their respective provinces.
This is an important task, especially after the many challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has drastically impacted on our normal way of work.
These congresses will serve as a platform towards strengthening our ideological and organisational work for the advancement of an improved, informed and capacitated framework which will be utilised as a guiding path towards the attainment of a more effective criminal justice system in our country.
These provincial congresses will be taking place as follows;
1. Eastern Cape: 14- 16 February 2022, East London
2. Free State: postponed
3. Kwa Zulu-Natal: 16- 18 February 2022, Central Drakensberg
4. Western Cape: 23- 25 February 2022, Cape Town
