Zambia Postal Services Corporation Unionized workers have called off their strike after assurances by Management that they will soon start receiving their salaries.

Zampost workers across the country have gone for five months without pay and had resorted to downing tools to press management to pay them their dues.

National Union for Communication Workers Lusaka Branch Chairperson Martin Ngulube confirmed to the media that the protest was called off Monday morning after a consensus was reached between the Union and Management that workers go back to work and salaries will be paid soon.

Mr. Ngulube said Management assured him that the payment of salaries will be one off for all employees across the country adding that all the workers have since returned to work.

“I can confirm that Management assured me that workers will be paid their salaries soon, they did not indicate whether it will be for the five months but I can confirm that by Wednesday we will know when the workers will start receiving their salaries”, He said.

Mr. Ngulube said the Zampost workers will be working even on New Years Day to help recover the money that was lost during the time they were protesting.

The Zampost workers were on strike for two weeks.

    • @Jay jay naimwe katwishi fye amano yenu. If your woman agrees to come back home after 2 weeks, doesn’t mean she has assured you to kiss you all night long.
      Post Workers have agreed to go back and continue to do what they do best, read The Mast newspapers under jacaranda trees.

  1. he is full of himself.They assured me.Are you the only leader who met management? then its a poor organisation where you agree with one person.

  2. Yabanyokola njala. You think it’s easy just to sit at home doing nothing. At least I used to leave some tips for allowing me to jump the queue.

  3. Ex Zamtel staff vote for sata thinking once he forms government will be reinstated…. Where are they….relying on a promise.

  4. “I can confirm that Management assured me that workers will be paid their salaries soon, they did not indicate whether it will be for the five months but I can confirm that by Wednesday we will know when the workers will start receiving their salaries”, He said.

    This is not a confirmation. This is typical of the Zambian culture of corruption and swindling that has developed since PF came to power.

  5. Wenye Ninjala yaban’yokola since when did the Zambian government pay 5monthes salary areas .No nchekeleko ndwii zuba chooo under the impression of striking .these are lazy comrades if they can’t make money for the institution how do they expect to be paid on time.next time fire them.

  6. A year ago a parcel was sent to zambia to date the parcel has never been recieved.Typical of zambian post bu pompwe sana.now i use DHL or fedex and the parcels are delivered
