POPCRU Gauteng to picket at the DCS Regional Office

The Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union (POPCRU) in the Gauteng Province will be having a lunchtime picket at the Department of Correctional Services (DCS) regional offices tomorrow, Wednesday the 31st of August 2022. 

This picket aims to raise issues around the lack of adequate security at various correctional centres which have seen numerous escapes at the centre, the shortage of personnel, illegal shift patterns, the lack of promotion policy.

These pickets are a clear indication yet of brewing dissatisfaction among members of the criminal justice cluster who have for far too long been subjected to unsavoury working conditions and are increasingly running out of patience. They are also part of a build-up towards the POPCRU National March to the Union Buildings, which is expected to take place on the 20th of September 2022.

The lunchtime picket will take place as follows:

DCS Reginal Office, Hatfield, Pretoria
Wednesday, 31 August 2022
12h00- 14h00

Media is hereby invited.
