PostNL reaches final agreement with trade unions

The Hague – PostNL has reached a final agreement with the trade unions. It was agreed that the Social Plan of PostNL is extended until 31 December 2015. This provides clarity for all employees who face or will be facing reorganisations during this period. Under the agreement, the new Collective Labour Agreement (CLA) for Saturday deliverers, the new CLA for PostNL Parcels and the pension arrangement for mail deliverers have also been adopted. Furthermore, parties have concluded that PostNL has met the obligations as laid down in the agreement on the reduction of forced redundancies.

The members of Abvakabo FNV, BVPP, CNV Publieke Zaak and VPP have given their final approval for the agreement in principle that was concluded earlier on 17 June 2013.

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