GHENT – The personnel at the postal department in Ghent have rejected the preliminary accord reached by unions and regional management. The strike will continue. Residents of Ghent city centre will most likely not receive post or newspapers today either.

The strike that was called on Friday is partly due to management's failure to correct problems with the computer system used to draw up the postal workers' routes. But the transfer of the night shift and the computerisation in the new sorting centre in Wondelgem are also causing unrest among personnel.
