The South African Revenue Service says 22 branches that were closed by 10 am on Thursday, reopened today.
Members of the National Education, Health and Allied Workers' Union (Nehawu) and Public Servants Association (PSA) went on strike on Thursday.
The unions have reached deadlock over a pay dispute - they are demanding an 11% pay hike while Sars is offering 7%.
Several gatherings have taken place outside agreed upon areas, including the Sars head office and Alberton campus leading to an interim Labour Court order interdicting picketing in unauthorised locations.
Sars remuneration executive, Takalani Musekwa says while the strike did affect some of its branches, it has not affected the movement of goods at ports of entry.
The ports of entry have continued to operate normally. The managers deployed at the ports of entry have managed to keep the operations there going.— Takalani Musekwa, Remuneration executive - Sars
The traffics that we experienced were normal traffic that happens on any given day, so we haven't experienced any traffic volumes and delays that can be attributed to the strike at the ports of entry.— Takalani Musekwa, Remuneration executive - Sars
OR Tambo is one of those areas where most of the employees came to work and we were able to retain a reasonable level of service.— Takalani Musekwa, Remuneration executive - Sars
