bpost has announced that its management and social partners have managed to reach terms on a collective labour agreement. The company says the deal is a positive response to the demands of employees and the challenges it is facing itself.
According to bpost, the main goal of the measures provided for in the CLA is to improve the attractiveness of jobs in the field, among other things by strengthening purchasing power. Management also confirms that jobs at the company are protected.
The postal operator adds that as was the case for previous CLAs, agreements have been reached on the payment of any non-recurring bonus linked to the 2023 and 2024 results. A raft of measures have also been provided for to improve employee wellbeing.
Commenting on the agreement, Jos Donvil, CEO of bpost Belgium, said:
“The 2023-2024 CLA provides guarantees to both members of staff and the company itself. The wellbeing of our people is at the heart of this agreement. Through this CLA bpost guarantees high-quality employment to all employees, giving special attention to improving their purchasing power, despite the tough financial context. At the same time, the CLA ensures that bpost can remain a healthy company that is able to respond in a flexible way to the expectations of customers and citizens.”
