The South African Post Office strike, which began on July 3, has now come to an end. After nearly two weeks of striking, post office trade unions came to an acceptable agreement.
As part of the agreement, post office staff will see a 6.5% raise and permanent part time employees are now contracted to work 27.5 hours weekly instead of 21.5 hours. Trade unions also negotiated for 500 part time workers to transition into full time workers in due course. Those who have not received their mail should expect all accumulated mail to be delivered within 20 days.
