“It’s not bad, but it is necessary to see where we start from. “Eddy Talbot of SUD-PTT, the second trade union in the branch post, remained cautious about the announcement yesterday of the direction of The Post office to double the number of hires planned in 2017. On the last day of negotiations on the working conditions of factors, the officials of The Post office have proposed to increase from 1 500 to 3 000 CDI. “To the distribution, there is even more leeway, so 3 000 it is a number homeopathic” said the trade unionist.
Faced with a declining mail volumes (30 % from 2008 to 2015), The Post office has reorganized its services with, in parallel, a significant decline in numbers (3 000 to 5 000 posts in less per year, just for the factors, since 2005) that has severely degraded conditions of work, according to unions. It is in this context that started at the end of October the cycle of negotiations and while many cases of suffering in the workplace, including suicides, have been publicized in the media.
It is necessary that the ads ” to be written “
beyond the question of employment, the negotiation had to focus on the management of the working time of 70 000 factors, the rhythms and workloads, the replacements and, more generally, the improvement of working conditions.
” there are still points of contention on the conditions and workload, ” said Martine Buty, FO. The management has made a gesture yesterday in terms of offers, but ” it is not yet in the heart of our concerns “.
The fourth trade union of the company expects that the announcements made yesterday on the jobs and promotions “to be written” before taking a position. SUD-PTT has already indicated that he would not sign the proposed final agreement.
