The ban on handling parcels announced by PAM in Post-in-Shop services has begun
PAM's ban on handling parcels in Post-in-Shop services started at midnight between Sunday and Monday on 25 November at 00. This means that everyone with duties consisting of handling parcels and letters in Posti circulation at Post-in-Shop services, should leave the work undone.
The Service Union United PAM supports PAU's collective bargaining process in the ongoing postal strike with a ban on handling parcels.
PAM supports PAU by denying the handling of parcels and letters circulating by Posti in Post-in-Shop services. These are located among others in grocery stores, cafes, service stations and pharmacies.
The ban on handling parcels started at midnight between Sunday and Monday on 25 November at 00. The two week long ban lasts until Sunday 8 December at 24.00.
PAM does not accept employer attempts to weaken the terms of employment for those working at Posti. The weakenings targeting the empoloyees are not just worries concerning PAU's members, as this can expand to other sectors as well.
The ban on handling parcels announced by PAM is a legal industrial action.
During the ban the worker should not hand over parcels or letters circluating in Posti distribution network to clients.
