Post Office Strike

South African Post Office

Update on industrial action at some Gauteng facilities of SA Post Office

Postal services in South Africa are still affected by industrial action by mail workers in the Gauteng province as well as in Bloemfontein and Polokwane. Talks to solve the strike are currently at a particularly sensitive stage and the Post Office is not at liberty to disclose details at this stage.
No employees at Post Office outlets are on strike, but intimidation and violence has led to the temporary closure of a number of post offices in the Johannesburg area, while six post offices in the area had to be closed as a result of vandalism. According to Lungile Lose, spokesperson for the SA Post Office, the company took this decision in the interest of customers and employee safety.

 

Press Release

Update on industrial action at Western Cape facilities of SA Post Office

8 October 2014

Mail processing continues uninterrupted in Cape Town following the return to work of striking mail workers. The postal service in Cape Town is affected mainly by strike action in Gauteng, Bloemfontein and Polokwane, which delays the processing of mail to and from these centres. Postal employees at other centres in South Africa are not on strike.

Post Office management continues with talks with labour unions. The reasons for the strikes centre on the appointment of casual workers in permanent positions, which the Post Office says it can implement only using a staggered approach given the difficult financial position the company is in.

Since the process started in 2013, more than 2 000 casual employees have been given permanent contracts. SA Post Office has recently concluded 600 more permanent contracts while 900 additional casual workers are also being issued with permanent contracts.

Customers who would like to enquire about mail items are requested to send an e-mail to customer.services@postoffice.co.za to enquire about mail items. They should include a tracking number with their enquiry.
