The Cape Town Labour Court today handed down judgement interdicting the City of Cape Town from continuing with the contemplated disciplinary proceedings against the Metro police allegedly involved in the occupation of the N2 last year.
“The Court ruled that the course of action followed by the City instituting disciplinary actions against the SAMWU members contradicted the national agreed disciplinary code,” says Andre Adams SAMWU Provincial Secretary.
“We are currently in dispute with the City on the breach of other collective agreements within the City such as agreement dealing (with) post-grading and job evaluation,” says Adams.
Spokesperson for the Executive Mayor of Cape Town Robert Macdonald says that the Labour Court ruling says the City cannot pursue a collective disciplinary process against the Metro Police.
