postoffice thumb100 EWN reports that the Communication Workers Union (CWU) is planning a strike at the SA Post Office (Sapo) next week.  

The union says this will happen on Thursday and Friday, before they embark on an indefinite strike over salary increases.  The workers claim they have not received a salary increase in the last two years.  CWU spokesman Clyde Mervin said:  “We must go to the streets so that we can start pushing government to give the Post Office enough funding so that workers can at least be at peace.”  Sapo CEO Mark Barnes said another strike would have a devastating impact on the organisation’s services.
