TNT welcomes opportunity to discuss labour conditions for the entire postal sector

Amsterdam, (PresseBox) - Today the Cabinet decided not to liberalise the Dutch postal market since it could not establish yet whether socially acceptable labour conditions for the entire postal sector were reached. TNT welcomes the opportunity to discuss decent labour conditions with Cabinet and all parties involved.

TNT emphasizes that also the other condition set by the Dutch government for opening the postal market to competition has not been met either: TNT is unable to compete on even terms in Germany and the UK. In Germany, TNT's court case on minimum wage is still pending.
