Postal workers postpone strike to allow time for negotiations

The Postal Workers Union announced Wednesday that it will postpone a strike planned for Thursday until the beginning of next week, Army Radio reported. The postponement of the strike is intended to allow additional time for negotiations with the Communications Ministry. The union intends to strike in protest of a plan to implement new rates for sending parcels. The Postal Authority claims that that the new rates will damage the postal service's standing against competitors.
