Deutsche Telekom tech service cuts mitigated by Verdi action

Wednesday 1 July 2015 | 10:59 CET | News
After protests at Deutsche Telekom's technical services (DTTS) against plans to restructure sites, the German trade union Ver.di reports that the measures could be mitigated after staff protests and negotiations with the employer. Thirty of the 153 sites could be saved, as opposed to eighteen originally, and are secured until at least 31 December 2021. Furthermore, the period for measures has been stretched, with agreements reached regarding salary protection, reimbursements for additional costs, semi-retirement provisions and alternative employment in other units of the company.
