Deutsche Post to create thousands of jobs on lower pay

According to Reuters, Deutsche Post will expand its package delivery service using lower paid employees. The company says that the wages it pays its existing postal workers are too high to be economically viable in the competitive parcel business:

deutschepostThe company plans to create 10,000 new jobs at the parcel business by 2020, a figure which could rise to around 20,000 by 2025, it said on Thursday.

The additional jobs will offer pay based on collective wage agreements for the logistics sector, rather than Deutsche Post’s more generous in-house agreement, putting the company on collision course with workers’ representatives.
