Wage negotiations are continuing between the SA Post Office and the Communication Workers Union (CWU) whose members downed tools on Monday.
CWU general secretary Aubrey Tshabalala said the strike by CWU and other unions had caused a national shutdown at the SA Post Office.
Tshabalala said that while the strike was continuing‚ unions were meeting employers in Johannesburg to find a solution to the impasse.
“We assume that all our members are on strike but we are also joined by other unions. As a matter of fact‚ the whole Post Office is shut down nationally. The strike got a huge support.
