Analysis: the Post office should be opening the parcel halpuutus thread – also rivals threaten to cut wages, if the state of the company gets his way

Postal collective bargaining dispute is ongoing information war.

Wednesday Post and logistics union pau, president of Heidi Nieminen presented to the national conciliator's office A4:for a printed chart, which shows the ecommerce and parcel sorting industry competition situation.

in simple terms Nieminen was the message that the Mail is in the field the only company that is transferring the package distributors media alliance and industrial alliance between the collective agreement. It is considered the other agreements in the field of cheaper.

in the Mail the situation is seen differently. The post Yle sent out in the email it says that "in Finland, operates 16 other distribution companies, who distribute also packages and comply with the industrial union collective agreement".

one of us is right, the Post office or the shop floor?

Competitors are wondering the Post arguments

Yle got his hands on a list of distribution companies, of which the Post speaks. On the list are, inter alia, sanoma Media Finland, Media ESA and Kaleva365:no.

All list of companies deliver to mainly newspapers and free distribution newspapers to the people. Therefore, they do not contest the Post with the online store and the package business, which the company apply to the competition the ability to jump.

the mail of the largest competitors in the package business are a mobile service and PostNord. They blame the state of the company Mail confidence trick.

Mail package, distributors are being transferred to the new company as if talking about the early distribution of business Travel management ceo Janne Jakola said.

the Post arguments package sorting which are really special, PostNord Finland's ceo Johanna Starck said.

This is a really competitive field, where the Post has a 50% market share and state-owned company should still gain a competitive advantage in wages by cutting.

Jakola and Starck say that the Post and pau's current collective bargaining agreement is cheaper than the competitors. Their calculations according to post types, the average salary is several hundreds of euros lower than, for example, a mobile maintenance service.

as well As mobile service that PostNord are suitable for the Automotive and transport workers union (AKT) and car transport employers ' federation (ATL) between the collective agreement.

so there is No wonder that Pau Nieminen now says to Yle that the package distributed with the relocation of the ACP's collective bargaining agreement for them. Instead, the media association agreement Nieminen said still no.

it Seems that PAU is right, what will become of the postal competitors in the collective agreements.

Unions fear wage cuts also in other companies

Pau and mail's competitors described by the situation makes understandable why the other workers unions have reacted to the tight situation.

the Mail was your package business, the first company, which would weaken workers ' conditions of employment.

the mail's rivals say directly, that they should consider hiring discounts if the Mail get their goals through.

We, the employees are terribly worried about the situation and employees are asking, what do we do in this situation. We too had to react to the accordingly, if the competitive situation changes, the mobile service Jakola said.

Postal competitors plans are the confederation of unions in well-known.

the Changes would apply to companies which have a valid Truck and transport the ACP's collective bargaining agreements. The ACP is announced in support of operations in support of other logistics and transport unions.

for the Same reason, the situation is extremely awkward also demarin-led government, which Pau Nieminen has relied on a number of occasions.

the labour party the democrats may not be approved by the state of the company's operations, which could push industry wages in a downward spiral.

in This equation does not heat the Post a promise, according to which workers ' salaries would remain unchanged in 27 months media association collective agreement.

Employees are afraid that after the deadline wages decreased by several tens percent.

Someone has to bend over

the Mail situation looks like that someone has to bend over before the agreement can be done.

Either the Post is to be taken package distributors back to the old collective agreement or the employees are forced to move to an industrial union agreement.

the owner of the control of the minister of Sirpa Paatero (sd.) certainly I hope that the parties may resolve the matter by negotiation.

in This role, the parties called on Thursday for four report people who have a lot of experience in difficult negotiations.

They hardly can setups change, even if the negotiations result will be a creative sound solution time.
