The unions want to obtain the opening of negotiations for all trades of the group and especially on the job, that will determine the success of the transformation of the company. In Paris, they invite the 22,000 officers of The Post office to gather outside the Senate, where it will take place in the afternoon a debate on the future of the Postal service, at the initiative of senators communists.

” The decline of the letter should encourage The Post office to find new sources of revenues
The senator Jean-Pierre Bosino, mayor of Montataire (Oise) was explained to have been interested in this debate, fearing “a new case of France Telecom (wave of suicides in 2008 and 2009, editor’s note)”. It is necessary “to put The Position under the protection of the citizen, occupying the post offices to prevent their closure and the removal of jobs,” he said. The Position is engaged in a broad program of transformation to become the first operator of services to the person”. This “revolution” requires a reorganization every two years: a pace “fast-paced” denounced by the experts of the HSC, a mutation in “forced march”, according to SOUTH. Even if the discomfort among postal workers key priority for the branch services-mail-parcels, the different trade unions claim that there is a general malaise and that the cases of stress and burn-out concern all the branches of services of the company.
negotiations scheduled in three plenary sessions with management, have started on the 26th of October in the following media coverage of cases of suffering at work, including suicides. This is a group of postal workers who had alerted the trade unions in mid-September, a series of suicides of factors, three of which had been recognized as “accidents” by the management. The management had subsequently submitted by the unions a set of proposals on the job of a factor than the CGT, SUD and the Unsa deem “unacceptable” and which made them leave the table discussions on 21 November 2016. They denounce a “dialogue of the deaf” and “a draft of an agreement that does not respond to the social emergency”. Following the alerts relayed by the media and synidcats, the company had reacted quickly but without compromising the ongoing transformation. Management was also committed to suspend the reorganisation of the working time of the negotiations that must be completed on 19 December, but they are however continued in several departments, according to SUD-PTT and the Unsa.
