Metro police posts advertised

Continued from page 1

“There is no basis for a strike and we will fight it. No one’s service agreements have been changed. We were very clear when we communicated with staff that no one can force them to join the metro police.”

According to Zitumane and Johann Mettler, acting municipal manager, staff is not being transferred but will be applying for the new positions. Mettler said this was communicated to staff on numerous occasions.

Mettler and Zitumane said all the right processes and procedures were following including sufficient consultations with the trade unions.

Six traffic officers were fired and four suspended for disrupting the official launch of the metro police on May 13.

Last week the DA’s mayoral candidate Athol Trollip said that Mayor Danny Jordaan, who is now also the ANC’s mayoral candidate, “tried to trick the people of the Bay by launching a fake metro police force, using only 2% of the recommended costing budget, which infringed various clauses contained in Chapter 12 of the Police Services Act.”

Trollip said many officers do not meet minimum education and training requirements and that some officers may have criminal records.
