Switzerland -Postal workers protest against layoffs and worse working conditions -June 13, 2012

Postal workers unions Syndicom organised a protest at the PostLogistics sorting centre in Daillens after an announcement that it is laying off 250 workers despite running a profit last years. Syndicom claims PostLogistics intends to fire the workers in order to re-hire them as self-employed contractors. The protest is aggravated by PostLogistics further plans to increase working hours, decrease holidays, lower starting salaries, and worsen social benefits in the next collective agreement.
