Zimpost workers are threatening to strike if their demands are not met following a memorandum which the Zimpost workers' committee sent to its management to discuss on their grievances.

Part of the grievances which needed to be addressed was the need to re-open the closed company clinic, transport costs/ challenges for staff, delayed salary payments, salary and bonus arrears, conditions of service for fixed contract employees and cost of living adjustment, Inadequacy of transport subsidy.

Speaking on the issue of delayed salaries, Zimpost Managing Direct Mr Chief Moyo said that salaries are paid from what the company generates and of the company makes nothing then Zimpost will not manage to meet salary payments.

" Salaries are paid from money that Zimpost generates which is Zimpost money and if we generate enough we are able to pay enough. If we don't generate enough we are not able to get money from anyone, but at the moment the company is not able and we have brought this to the attention of our principal" he said

Mr Moyo also said that the company is also owing the pension fund which has also put Zimpost in a bad position.

In addition to addressing the grievances raised by the workers Mr Moyo promised to add an extra $3 on the employees' transport allowance.
