GHENT – A majority of the drivers and postal delivery workers based at the postal office Ghent 1 in the city centre have rejected yet another proposal from management.

As a result post will once again not be delivered in the centre on Monday.

The postal workers in Ghent are striking because of problems with Georoute, the computer programme used to draw up the postal routes, and in protest of the computerisation of postal sorting.

The strike has now entered its eleventh day.

New negotiations with the management will probably follow. "We hope so," says Albert Leydens of Christian trade union ACV.
