International trade unions have condemned TNT for not beginning formal negotiations on the future of TNT Logistics employees.
The International Transport Workers’ Federation and Union Network International met with TNT informally in Amsterdam, but the unions said, that the company was not willing to discuss the future of its 36,000 employees after the logistics division goes up for sale.
The unions say that they are not opposing the sale of TNT Logistics. “Workers are simply asking TNT to ensure that existing terms and conditions, collective bargaining and working arrangements are a condition of the sale to a new buyer.”
TNT’s chief executive officer Peter Bakker confirmed that the signing of the sale of TNT logistics division, is expected to take place sometime during the third quarter.
