Romania -Post offices closed -May 14, 2013

A sudden strike action has spread at Romanian Post. 14 Post offices in Bucharest were closed down and workers in other offices are threatening to stop work. The workers interrupted work because they are unhappy that the Post leadership wants to impose a number of unpaid free days and reduce the work schedule for all employees. They complain that they have to deliver the mail in just one delivery round a day, down from two previously. Employees say one trip is too little for the high volume of mail to deliver. Another complaint is that the management is reducing the working hours, leading to a salary cut of 15 to 20%.
