CAPE TOWN - The Communication Workers' Union (CWU) says it's encouraged by the South Africa Post Office (Sapo)'s commitment to address workers' concerns.

The union yesterday agreed to suspend its two-day strike following a meeting with management.

Workers downed tools, calling for a 10 percent wage increase and permanent contracts.

CWU's general secretary Aubrey Tshabalala says they'll reconsider the suspension in a month's time.

"It has moved from what was said in the corridors and it's a very limited time. Obviously if we are not happy we will go back to the protest action."
