The South African Security Forces Union has accused Defence Minister Lindiwe Sisulu of being arrogant.
The union says she is failing to embrace what it calls the new culture of the post-Polokwane African National Congress.
The union’s national executive committee met over the weekend and resolved to fight the intended dismissal of three-thousand soldiers.
This follows their protest at the Union Buildings in Pretoria last week.
The union also wants the police’s actions against the protest march investigated.
Sasfu resolved to continue fighting until soldiers are no longer the worst paid members of the security cluster.
