13-10-16… NO REPRO FEE …   This week, the international trade union, UNI Global Union, holds World Post and Logistics Conference in Dublin at the Croke Park Conference Centre. Pic shows from left Stephen DeMatteo Head of UNI Post and Logistics , Christy Hoffman UNI Global Union Switzerland  , Steve Fitzpatrick of the CWU in Ireland and Philip Jennings UNI Global Union General Secretary at Croke Park during conference . Over 260 delegates from 50 countries, representing over 2 million postal and logistics workers, will assemble to examine the impacts of e-commerce on the post and logistics sector. As mail volumes collapse worldwide, and parcel volumes increase, e-commerce is driving a huge and irreversible shift in how businesses and consumers interact. E-commerce is also presenting major challenges to the business models of national postal service providers who, in most cases, remain saddled with obligations to meet the costs of public service obligations on declining mail volumes. UNI Global Union will examine the implications of these changes for postal workers and the trade union movement, and how postal and logistic sector unions represent and protect the pay and working conditions of postal workers. The issues addressed also have major implications for the postal and logistics sector in Ireland.  UNI Global Union has commissioned research into the impacts of e-commerce on the postal and logistics sector worldwide.   Pic Maxwell’s -= No Repro Fee  13-10-16
