Promoting European Social Dialogue in the Postal Sector in an enlarged Europe

Wednesday 21 February 2018

UNI Europa Post & Logistics together with PostEurop finalised the 2-year project entitled: “Promoting European Social Dialogue in the Postal Sector in an enlarged Europe”.

The project was aimed primarily at analysing the digital transformation of the postal sector. The objective is to get first-hand information on how postal operators and trade unions have managed to support the increased digitalisation of their organisations with impacts on jobs and competences, on the work organisation as well as on training needs and methods.

A special focus was placed on the programmes of digital transformation put in place within companies in terms of training and cultural evolution. In this framework, the needs in terms of digital skills and new jobs were in focus. The project sheds light on the impact of the digital tools and new technologies on work organisation. The opportunities that the digital economy represents in terms of development of new activities, in particular the parcels’ ones, in view of the growing e-commerce market were also considered.

The project also focused on capacity-building activities to raise awareness and disseminate the work of the postal services social dialogue committee, in particular but not exclusively, in Central and Eastern Europe. The project enabled the engagement of social partners in European social dialogue activities where there is often limited attendance and involvement.
