PNG Police Association

Payment of joint security forces underway

In a press conference today, the PNG Police Association said the Government immediately made the undertaking following last week’s threat of industrial confrontation.

The General Secretary of the Police Association, Clemence Kanau, said the Deputy Prime Minister, on behalf of the Prime Minister and his government, hosted a meeting with the Trade Union Congress and Police Association executives to solve issues raised by these unions.

Police union threaten to go on strike

Police Association president Lowa Tambua says the union is closely monitoring the situation tipped for the reshuffle of the top police boss.

Tambua said the rumoured removal is of no benefit to the force.

The union, with its 3000-plus members, is on standby to be withdrawn if the Government removes Baki.

Tambua added that the union has it on good authority the removal of Baki, which he says will cause instability among the rank and file.
