Johannesburg - Casual workers at mail processing centres in some parts of Gauteng have gone on strike, the SA Post Office (SAPO) said on Tuesday.
“(This was) part of their lobbying campaign to be appointed into permanent part-time positions,” the SAPO said in a statement.
“The SA Post Office management is currently engaged in talks with representatives of the striking temporary employees and it is expected that the industrial action will end very soon.”
The strike started on Monday.
The SAPO said the strike would result in mail delivery delays of about 24-hours in some parts of the province.
Retail outlets had not been affected by the strike. - Sapa
