Belgium: Nivelles postal workers still out on strike.

Belgium: Nivelles postal workers still out on strike.

Workers in the Nivelles offices decided to continue their strike after management refused to award permanent contracts to fixed term workers.

The were also walkouts in Ittre and Braine l'Alleud. Workers' representatives at meetings yesterday obtained some concessions. Management gave way on the organisation of routes and the need for extra workers on those routes.

However management stood firm on the issue of fixed-term contracts, refusing to make these contracts permanent.

Postal workers claim that the management is deliberately keeping a skeleton permanent staff and keeping the rest of the workers on fixed-term contracts.
