Zambia Postal Services Limited Workers in Lusaka have gone back to work following government’s commitment to recapitalise the company joining their colleagues in other provinces who resumed work recently.
Transport and Communications Minister Brian Mushimba recently said he is engaging the Ministry of Finance to release K50 million to recapitalise the company.
Mr. Mushimba also promised to help the company to collect the K20 million it is owed by some government Ministries to help clear salary arrears.
A check at selected post offices found the offices open with workers carrying out their normal duties.
And National Union of Communication Workers Lusaka Branch Chairman Martin Ngulube said the strike has been called off to allow management and the Union to engage each other on the matter.
Mr Ngulube however disclosed that the Union has declared a dispute with Zampost Management as a further step to resolve the matter.
The National Union for Communications Workers earlier this week urged Zampost Workers to go back to work following government’s commitment to help them collect the K20 million owed to them by partners which they can use to pay salaries.
Union General Secretary Richard Mulenga said government has also committed to help pay salaries at Zampost following a meeting held between the Union and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Transport and Communications Engineer Misheck Lungu.
