(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #290 - La Poste: A model of privatization of public services (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Sat, 12 Jan 2019 10:11:57 +0200

The State intends to withdraw from the capital of La Poste via a capital increase in the public company by the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations. The consequences for the public service will be proportionate to the demands of the future majority shareholder. ---- The opening of the capital in 2010 had already traced the future of this public service, that of a term privatization. The various " reforms " that take place at La Poste have already been applied in other administrations (eg staff appraisal). The step taken with this privatization in the long term, could give ideas on methods to change the vision of public services. ---- What is behind this project ? ---- Not easy to summarize the project of the government, especially that the latter, the departments of the Post and the CDC are hiding behind a slogan that might seem quite attractive to some: " the establishment of a public financial pole . " All the more misleading as this slogan was brandished by two trade unions at La Poste, the CGT and SOUTH PTT for a while. This was also issued in the debates during the opening of the capital by SUD PTT.

Now, if there is a public financial pole in words, on paper it is rather non-existent. The project is primarily a project increasing the considerable weight of the Bank in the accounts of La Poste.

Far from sticking to a programmed upheaval of the habits of the population, it is a strategic choice of the company and the state. To move towards a more and more financiarized company, whose funds will be used above all to acquisitions whether it is international or in the field of the services of the person which would constitute, in the long term, according to the president of La Poste a fifth public postal service.

The public service will drink ...
This project will inevitably impact the public service. The management and the government ensure the maintenance of the distribution 5 days out of 7. It even ensures that it is this purchase by the CDC which will guarantee the durability of the distribution of the mail. But the successive reorganizations and the implementation of a reorganization called piloted distribution, already impact, this public service since the directions can keep in the " fridge " of the mail when they consider that the distribution is not profitable in view of the quantity to distribute ...

On the financial side, even if the public service has been moving away for a long time, the management will increase its pressure to serve only profitable clients.

... and the staff too

In this configuration, the postal staff will be hit hard by the reorganizations and productivity demands of the future majority shareholder. Even if it is not new, they will increase inevitably. For example, at La Banque Postale, while the profitability (operating ratio) will be at the same level as the other banks, the director of financial services stated at a Board of Directors that postal workers La Banque Postale will have to continue making efforts.

The management's policy has so far been to handle the carrot by making waves of promotion. But this policy is starting to dry up. The carrot begins to get smaller and on the other side the stick has come out by an authoritarianism more and more urgent in the services.

Faced with this, trade unions applaud with both hands.
While during the project of opening of the capital, a rather important arc of circle had been found to fight the project of the direction and the government, there it was strongly reduced ... FO, the CFDT that it is by their representative · The union or elected members of the board of directors are behind the management to lead this project, such as CFTC, GSC and UNSA. The elected representatives SUD and CGT voted against the Board of Directors while the other unions voted for. These union positions do not bode well to fight the project in the company and perhaps there remains only an outside mobilization to fight the fight of a public postal service defined by the population and the postman. e · s in the service of the population. SOUTH PTT started this battle by occupying the CDC on November 22nd.
