Popcru is protesting against the South African Police Service over an interdict served against the union on the 15th June.
National Popcru spokesperson Pat Ntsobi said the issues giving effect to the interdict are being dealt with by the union's National Executive Committee.
The union says that SAPS is preventing its members working in this sector from participating in the strike but that this would not silence them.
As disappointment and frustration is mounting, these police officers feel it is unfair that they are not able to exercise their right to strike.
Now Popcru has developed and adopted a programme which entails demonstrations starting on Thursday, for the whole of next week. According to Ntsobi, the culmination of this action will definitely result in a national march.
Popcru members can expect feedback from the union as of Tuesday regarding the planned action.
