Belgium - Unions critical about relocation - January 31, 2017

The plan of post company Bpost to transfer some 200 jobs of external ICT specialists to two Indian companies was received very critical by both the Telecommunications Minister and the trade unions. The unions are furious and call it a scandal for a publicly-owned company to move jobs abroad to low-wage countries. One of the tasks of the still employed 200 ICT specialists is to train the Indian workers.
