Cosatu march over labour brokers

JOHANNESBURG - The Post Office on Saturday promised to improve the working conditions of its casual workers, who have been on strike for four months now.

It said it was in negotiations for these staff to work overtime to cover the backlog caused by the industrial action.

The Post Office said it would monitor labour brokers to ensure that workers are not taken advantage of.

Delivery of mail has been severely affected by the mass action.

The Post Office said it would compensate customers who lost mail during the strike.

Post Office spokesperson Janras Kotsi said, "Things are going to be different from now on. We are going to pay more attention on how they are being managed."

The strike was called off on Tuesday following an agreement between the two parties.

However, Communication Workers Union (CWU) refused to recognise the agreement saying it was done "in Mafia style".
