Mail delivery delayed

Mail delivery in Gauteng and the Western Cape continue to be delayed by unprotected industrial action at mail-sorting centres in Cape Town, Pretoria and the greater Johannesburg area.

Mail in Gauteng is delayed by around four weeks, the result of a previous strike from which the production environment had not yet recovered from a previous strike.

The industrial action pertains to the appointment of temporary mail workers into permanent positions. The SA Post Office is in the process of converting temporary posts into permanent positions.
