PostNL's CLA and extension of Social Plan approved

The Hague – The members of Abvakabo FNV, BVPP, CNV Publieke Zaak and VPP trade unions have approved the agreement in principle for PostNL's CLA.

The CLA, which runs from 1 January 2012 to 31 March 2013, is a good balance of the wishes of both the labour organisations and the company. The Social Plan will be extended by one year from 1 January 2013 through to 31 December 2013. There will be a 1.7% salary increase along with 0.4% after the definitive approval of the new pension scheme. The parties are jointly in talks with the pension fund on a new pension arrangement. After approval about this with the pension fund, the labour organisations will present the arrangement to their members.

In case of any discrepancies between the English and Dutch versions of this press release, the Dutch version prevails.
