CWU to continue fight for striking members
The post office says the no work no pay policy still stands.
JOHANNESBURG - The Communication Workers' Union (CWU) says it will continue to fight for its members at the post office despite management not paying workers and sticking to the no work no pay policy.
The post office strike has entered into its third month as frustration mounts among those who rely on postal service.
The strike has led to closures of post offices across the country as a result of intimidation and vandalism by striking workers.
While workers are demanding a 15 percent salary increase, the post office made a new offer, after six percent was rejected last week.
The CWU's Clyde Mervin said, "We will have to fight the struggle of no work no pay because we believe the workers have a genuine struggle."
The post office's Lungile Lose says the no work no pay policy still stands.
"We have always stressed no work no pay."
