Police Union Calls for Overtime Increase During World Cup

The South African Policing Union is calling for an increase in ovetime allowances for its members during the World Cup.

Police management had offered to pay employees R700 per shift for overtime worked.

The union rejected this and demanded a R900 allowance per shift for its members and that they only work up to eight hours of overtime per day.

"We don't want a situation where our members will refuse working overtime, especially during the World Cup."

The union has called on police management to attend to the matter urgently as it could compromise security during the World Cup.
