Festive season: traffic cops to get overtime

2009-11-18 00:00

THE KwaZulu-Natal Transport Department has denied allegations that Road Traffic Inspectorate (RTI) officers will not be paid for overtime during the festive season due to budget constraints.

Head of department Chris Hlabisa has dismissed the reports as untrue, inaccurate and misleading. He said that during the festive season, the officers will have a limit of 56 hours for overtime.

This is the second time the issue of overtime was raised this year. In October the RTI officers opted not to work overtime during Diwali and the Amashova cycle race after they had not been paid for overtime for four months.
