Germany -Protests at Deutsche Post DHL receive worldwide support -May 27, 2015

Workers to be employed by DHL delivery would continue to do the same work, but earn up to €3,500 less per year.

Workers at Deutsche Post DHL have organised large scale protests as the company attempts to circumvent the collective agreement by moving 10,000 workers into its newly established shell company DHL delivery. Workers to be employed by DHL delivery would continue to do the same work, but earn up to €3,500 less per year. Six thousand Deutsche Post-DHL workers have put the company on trial at its annual general meeting in Frankfurt. The protesting workers were calling on shareholders of the postal and logistics giant to stop its plans to slash parcel workers’ wages and take away their rights.
