Poste, negotiations for the contract that accompanies the tech revolution are underway

2 min read


The contract of the 120 thousand workers of Poste Italiane expired a couple of months ago. In recent weeks the trade unions (Slp Cisl, Slc Cgil, Uilposte, Confsal, Failp Cisal and Fnc Ugl) have presented their platform of demands where, among other things, they ask for an increase of 260 euros when fully operational and precisely in these hours negotiations for the renewal are starting.

Raffaele Roscigno, general secretary of the Slp Cisl, explains that “very clear objectives” can be read in the platform. Among these there is certainly the theme of participation, which has always been very dear to the CISL, ensuring that “workers become protagonists of company choices”, says the trade unionist. Especially in a phase in which a topic such as the use of artificial intelligence is advancing.

The contract that accompanies the technological revolution

The negotiation opens in an economic context that is still affected by the inflationary flare-up and its outcome is eagerly awaited by the 120 thousand workers who make Poste Italiane the largest employer in our country. Society is grappling with an important technological and digital revolution which will also impact work and its organisation. The new contract, says Roscigno, «will be the basis on which to build the future of the largest Italian services company, in a context of challenges and changes for the sector».

The 4 pillars

According to what emerges from the union platform, there are 4 pillars of requests on which the table will be based. Certainly the strengthening of the contractual area to make the Italian Post Office contract the point of reference for all companies operating in the delivery sector: the objective is to define common rules for the entire supply chain, including the last mile, in order to avoid contractual dumping.

The second is worker participation on issues such as work organization, health, safety and training. Participation which for the unions must also become economic with a widespread share ownership plan aimed at employees on a voluntary basis. Bilateral bodies and joint observatories also need to be strengthened, with attention to the disruptive phenomenon of artificial intelligence to prevent it from triggering any human replacement mechanism.
