The aim is to modernize the company along the lines of the surrounding countries, increase efficiency and improve customer service.
The first step will be to adjust the organizational structure and jobs. In the first phase, the cancellation of jobs or a change in the agreed working conditions will affect approximately 1,500 postal staff, and 756 redundant jobs will be lost.
After talks with the trade unions, the post office withdrew from the original plan to lay off more than 900 employees. The spokeswoman of the post office, Iveta Dorčáková, informed about it, stating that this is a long-term planned decision that is not related to the pandemic.
According to the spokesperson, this decision comes after preliminary negotiations with postal unions. The aim is to modernize the company along the lines of the surrounding countries, increase efficiency and improve customer service.
“Slovenská pošta currently employs 12,894 employees with work in all parts of Slovakia. Together with colleagues, we have prepared a comprehensive transformation plan, including digitization of services, modernization of logistics network infrastructure and increasing capacity in the parcel segment, reorganization and streamlining the delivery of shipments and other measures that will bring higher quality services to our clients in the future. Unfortunately, it also includes job cuts. “ stated the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Slovenská pošta Martin Ľupták.
For other jobs, there will be a change in weekly working hours or a change in the job classification of employees.
Employees who will be affected by the change in the organizational structure, but their job is not lost, but their working hours are increased, the basic salary will be increased.
They get severance pay
“The whole reform of the functioning of postal services in Slovakia has several steps, this is only the first of them. We will report on the whole comprehensive reform in a few weeks’ time. “ Ľupták approached.
Slovenská pošta will offer the affected employees other suitable work and other vacancies will be intended primarily for redundant employees.
Each employee who decides not to accept another job offer will receive severance pay in accordance with the Labor Code and the collective agreement, depending on the number of years worked. The post office expects to pay 3.5 million euros in severance pay.
The optimization process is also supported by the main shareholder of Slovenská pošta, the Ministry of Transport and Construction (MDV) SR. “The current situation at the post office is unsustainable for a long time. The business model in the field of postal services has changed radically in recent years. In Slovakia, too, we finally need to move so that people do not go to the post office as punishment, but to make it easier for them to access postal services and bring them more comfort, “ noted the Minister of Transport Andrej Doležal (nominee We are a family).
