PostNL executives to get no bonuses this year

Wednesday 25 April 2012

Members of the executive board at postal delivery firm PostNL will not get a bonus this year, new CEO Herna Verhagen is quoted as saying by the Financieele Dagblad.

The company has been at the centre of protests since it emerged the board had been given hefty bonuses and pay rises, despite a reorganisation which is costing thousands of workers their jobs. In addition, PostNL has refused to top up shortfalls in the company pension scheme.

The paper says Verhagen told a shareholders meeting 'it is not a good idea [to give bonuses] at a time when so much is being asked of staff and clients'.

Verhagen took over as CEO earlier this month when Harry Koorstra stepped down, citing differences with the supervisory board.

They really do nor deserve a bonus.The amount of money this terrible company has lost my small business over the last couple of years is a disgrace and i doubt i am not the only one.

Every time I see anything about Post.nl in the press my blood boils. On Feb 26th my bank account was blocked and it was only then I found out some of my mail was being returned to sender. It had been going on since October 2011. I telephoned Post.nl and sent several emails. Every time the answer was the same. The problem was noted, case closed!!! It took them from then to April 4th to fix. To date no letter of explanation, just a call and a Post.nl employee on my doorstep saying from then on my mail would be delivered as normal. I'm still trying to sort out the mess this has caused.
