Mariska Exalto, director of FNV Public Interest: “In the conversation PostNL indicated that it would look at a nice gesture, but whether that is enough? For us, that means at least equal pay for everyone, especially for the temporary workers who have worked for PostNL for years. to work.”
Last week, PostNL announced that it would increase its profit distribution from 2 to 3 percent. “That’s great, but the profit distribution does not apply to temporary workers. That is how PostNL deals with temporary workers, some of whom have worked for the company for more than ten years,” said Exalto. “For temporary workers, only the hourly wage is the same as for permanent employees. They have a worse pension, no job security and do not share in the benefits that permanent employees of PostNL have.”
FNV believes that people should be permanently employed for the structural work in the parcel sorting centers. In this way, people receive the same reward and appreciation and future perspective. “Until then, it is precisely the temporary workers who do the heavy work that PostNL makes a profit from, that they should be equally rewarded”, says Exalto.
