Jakarta, Feb 3 (ANTARA News) - Corporate Secretary of PT Pos Indonesia Benny Otoyo has confirmed that the state-owned postal service firm`s employees would receive their delayed salaries on Monday (Feb 4).

"Regarding the late payment of the employees` salaries, the board of directors have guaranteed that the workers will have received theirs on February 4, 2019," he said in a press statement made available to Antara here on Sunday.

In improving the company`s business performance, he called on the whole employees and unionists within PT Pos Indonesia to maintain a harmonious industrial relationship with those in the management, and to preserve the firm`s good image.

The firm`s internal problems should be resolved by those representing the management and trade union in accordance with agreed mechanism. The two parties should also respect each other and avoid counter-productive actions, he said.

PT Pos Indonesia has been attempting to provide community members and clients with the best services, Benny Otoyo said.

This state-owned postal service firm has recently been shaken by a labor strike demanding for an improvement of its employees` welfare.

In its recent strike, the company`s trade union (SPPI) reportedly forced the board of directors to pay the employees` delayed salaries.
