JOHANNESBURG - The Communication Workers Union (CWU) says it will decide what further action to take if Post Office management does not respond to its final counter proposal.
The union has revised its initial demand of a 15% wage hike and immediate permanent contracts for casual workers.
The union's Clyde Mervin says workers have now decided on a 7,5% salary hike backdated from 1 April and a further 0,5% increase from January.
Mervin says they also want employees to be given permanent posts within 16 month and an agreement that will hold for two years.
