Belgium -Rumours about early retirement back at Proximus -November 30, 2015

Even before telecom operator Proximus and the trade unions have started the negotiations for a new collective agreement the news was spread that the company wants to reduce the workforce with 7% by using an early retirement scheme for elderly workers. Both partners have denied that there is such a proposal. However, at the same time it is clear that the trade unions are open to discuss such a scheme. A similar proposal that was discussed early 2015 failed and was never implemented.
