The Hague court stops union actions at PostNL
PostNL is pleased with this ruling. This week marks the start of the traditional peak season with Black Friday, to be followed by Sinterklaas en Christmas. PostNL will take additional operational measures to limit the impact of potential union actions as much as possible, so as to ensure that customers and consumers enjoy a wonderful festive season. In addition, PostNL will stay in close contact with customers in order to support them in delivering their mail and parcels in time to consumers.
Meanwhile, PostNL continues CLA negotiations with two unions, BVPP and CNV, this week. PostNL aims to reach labour agreements that are in line with the interests of employees and customers, that ensure that it remains an attractive employer and keep PostNL in a sound financial position in the long term.
