CWU calls for Public Protector's report into alleged Post Office fraud
Union members will stage a protest march against the Sapo, demanding accountability.
JOHANNESBURG - The Communication Workers Union (CWU) says it wants the Public Protector's office to release a report into alleged fraud at the South African Post Office.
On Thursday, the union's Gauteng members will stage a protest march against the Post Office, demanding accountability for what they say is poor management.
Last week, Post Office management announced workers would only be paid half their salaries for October, with the rest of their money expected at the end of the month.
This raised the ire of the union and CWU's Aubrey Tshabalala said they are tired of hearing excuses and want action be taken.
"The company itself is not fully functioning. Month-in, month-out we hear of the company not being able to pay service providers, we hear of the company not being able to pay salaries. So that's one of the reasons we'll be going to the Public Protector."
The union said it's unfair when their members have worked for a full calendar month and the parastatal is playing with fire.
The Post Office has been battling financial problems with claims that some of its money has gone missing.
