Strike leads to closure of post offices

Several post offices around the city have been closed to ensure safety of employees and customers after a two-week unprotected strike turned violent.

Several post offices and mail delivery depots were still closed on Monday because of an ongoing strike and violent protests by casual and part-time post office employees.

SA Post Office officials said the closures were aimed at ensuring the safety of employees and customers. Dismissals are also on the cards for striking workers.
