Staff of Jails Threaten Strike

The staff of all jails and clinics for prisoners will strike if Deputy Minister Fred Teeven will not start negotiations with them before 18 April on the proposed savings plan. According to the plan, a number of jails may have to close. The trade unions ask that employees have to be involved in negotiations in the plan and alternative work has to be proposed for personnel who lose their jobs. If Teeven doesn’t accept this, there will be a general strike of jail personnel on 25 April.
