Post Office workers facing retrenchments to march to the Department of Communication

# South African Post Office workers will be marching to the Department of Communication in Pretoria today. The march is over the possible retrenchment of around four-thousand-700 workers. The Post Office’s business rescue practitioners have applied to the Unemployment Insurance Fund for a Temporary Employment Relief Scheme, which would pay 75-percent of workers’ salaries. This has resulted in the retrenchment being halted. The Post Office previously said it would need to retrench workers after staff costs were more than 150-percent of its revenue.
