Netherlands -PostNL resolves conflict with independent drivers -July 20, 2015

A conflict between PostNL and independent delivery drivers was resolved, putting all parcel deliverers back to work. The conflict emerged over the low remuneration of the self-employed independent parcel deliverers, who were backed by trade union FNV. On 13 July, PostNL invited all independent deliverers to either become direct employees or accept a 10% increase in remuneration as independents. Most, but not all drivers accepted the offer immediately. By 20 July, all parcel deliverers were back to work.
