Popcru rejects the 4.7% public service wage hike [SOUND]

# The Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union has threatened to mobilise its members for a march to Pretoria to press their salary demands. They vehemently reject the 4.7-percent wage increase offered by the Department of Public Service and Administration, calling it insufficient. The union’s discontent stems from years of wage freezes and below-inflation salary hikes. Popcru’s Richard Mamabolo criticised the increase, stating it fails to keep up with the cost of living and inflation, which reached 5.6-percent last month:
