ITF/UNI’s global delivery campaign has been given substantial attention in issue 38 of the ITF’s flagship publication, Transport International.
La Red de Trabajadores de DHL, una red global de más de 200.000 trabajadores en más de 50 sindicatos, ha reunido un mensaje en vídeo para la empresa, exigiendo que muestre respeto a sus trabajadores y firmar un acuerdo global que hará claro sus compromisos con los derechos de las y los trabajadores y sus responsabilidades explícitas.
A new union video has condemned global delivery firm Deutsche Post DHL for betraying its hallmark value of respect for workers. The video, launched by global union UNI and the ITF under the auspices of the DHL Workers’ Network, which comprises more than 50 unions globally, highlights the company’s failure to respect workers’ rights worldwide.
Competition officials at the European Commission have confirmed that they have sent “statements of objections” to DHL, Panalpina and Kuehne & Nagel, relating to price-fixing allegations on trade leaving and entering the EU.
DHL employees have vowed to begin a programme of industrial action after managers rejected a union plan to keep open the DHL European headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.
More than 250 DHL employees followed the call from the Unions and came to the manifestation in Brussels. Friday, the 29th of January, the three biggest Belgian Trade Union confederations organised a manifestation in Brussels to send a strong signal to the Ministers of employment in Europe.
DHL management decided in January to sell its UK parcel delivery operations to Home Delivery Network (HDN). 4,700 employees based mainly in Heathrow are affected by this step.
