Norway - Union saves jobs from the New Concept Office’s threat - January 14, 2010

Its New Concept Office proved not to be the “golden egg” for the Norwegian Post; instead, the Post planned to cut 300 jobs annually between 2010 and 2012. Under these conditions, the Postkom union reached an agreement to save jobs and maintain good working conditions. No redundant worker should be sent to unemployment, and alternative employment should be found within the group or externally. The process and the agreement’s implementation will be followed; in case of deviations from planned change, Postkom has the right to go back to negotiations.
