CWU issues warning to Post Office over staff salaries
Post Office says it can only pay a portion of salaries & the rest at the end of the month.
JOHANNESBURG - The Communication Workers Union (CWU) says it's unacceptable that the Post Office is planning to pay its workers only half their salaries on Friday.
The South African Post Office has written to the union saying that it can only pay a portion of the salaries and the rest at the end of the month.
The union's president Clyde Mervin says it's unfair when their members have worked for a full calendar month and the parastatal is playing with fire.
"If the Post Office does not come to the party on Friday by paying workers full salary, what I can tell you the workers are ready for anything."
