France - Blog on the negotiations at the postal services - January 01, 2017

In a blog of a Magazine, several interviews are published with trade unionists active in the postal services. It is reported how trade unions at the postal services (La Poste) were constantly locked in intense negotiations with management over working conditions that have been linked to escalating levels of psychological distress among its 250,000 employees. The strong position of trade unions at La Poste has meant that workers were able to negotiate with management and ensure that workers’ rights were protected. Every phase of company restructuring has been accompanied by close consultation with the unions.
