A cynical trade unions after consultation with the government: No guarantees that a naked fired by Proximus avoided will be
The trade unions of Proximus have this afternoon, disappointed, reacted after the end of their meeting with the prime minister, Charles Michel, minister of Work, Kris Peeters and minister of Telecom and Philippe De Backer. “There is no commitment by the government as a majority shareholder to weigh in on the policy at Proximus. We have no guarantees that naked redundancies avoided will be”, said trade union leader Bart Neyens of GCPS. At the christian union sounds the same sound.

Proximus made last week a restructuring plan in which 1.900 jobs on the trip, but also 1.250 new hires.

“The prime minister put words not in deeds,” said Neyens. “The government wants to benefit from Proximus, but to do something for the workers there is not. On the basis of what said so far is, I don't think we can negotiate,” said Neyens, who looked stressed as soon as possible for inspection to want to get in the transformation plan that Proximus wants to make. Also ACV-Transcom hopes as soon as possible to inspect. “The content is much too vague,” trade union leader Ben Coremans.

“Social dialogue must now take all the opportunities to get”

Minister Peeters said this afternoon that the government's “plain language” has spoken. “The prime minister has last week said that the plan should be adjusted and that naked redundancies for our problematic. That is a clear signal to management. We assume that the dialogue between management and trade unions will lead to an adjustment of the plan. The social dialogue must now take every opportunity.”
