CAPE TOWN - The Communication Workers Union (CWU) has called for the South African Post Office's executive management to be sacked.

Labour unrest has plagued the post office for several weeks.

The dismissal of almost 500 casual workers, who were later hired as permanent staff amid allegations of nepotism and corruption have fuelled labour anger.

The CWU's Aubrey Tshabalala says, "The executive management of the post office must be dismissed, all of them. We are further saying that the board of the South African Post Office, in particular the acting chairperson, must be removed from their positions. Those are the areas we feel will be a permanent solution to resolve the strike."

Post Office officials have put forward a proposal to end the strike, which workers are still considering.
