THE NEW TRAKT SYSTEM
AND THE INVITATION TO THE PREMO CHIEF TO EXPLAIN IT

TO: Joakim /Sundh/
Many here wished you would shown up in our filial.
I would like to give you a short note that makes you aware of sentiments at our fililal.

You said in your answer to the invitation..
surely you understand that we would not introduce a change big as this were we not forced to for economic reasons
Truly, our reason for inviting you is our not understanding this. Let me explain..

1..At Premo’s presentation of the trakt change the prime reason mentioned was never economic. Nothing was said about a lack of profit for the company. During this process we have been constantly under-informed and have had to turn to rumours and guessing as of your plans proper. Add to this the fact that Premo early on rejected our proposal for participation in this process of change. Thus, it is not fair to suggest that a change is understood by us to be a necessary economic fact.




2..Our resistance to the trakt change is due to the unacceptable reduction in salary, in general 30 – 40%. If there were economic reasons for it, it would be reasonable to see cost savings in other places than just with us. We don’t see that elsewhere. And what about the reduction of your own salary as a means to save – 30%? To think that we should understand that a reduction in our salary is an economic necessity is to ask for too much. Surely you’ll understand.

3..The out of the ordinary in this reduction of our salary can be seen by this fact: no person at this filial will have the opportunity to belong to an unemployment benefit fund. To push us out from a social security system that is a recognized part of our society clearly shows how unreasonable the suggested new trakt system is.

We want problems of this kind to be recognized, and explained by you.

ANNOUNCEMENT
THERE WILL BE A FICTITIOUS*

ONE-DAY STRIKE AT MATTEUS
AGAINST THE NEW TRAKT SYSTEM

SATURDAY 24TH OF APRIL 2010
outside the filial starting at 02:00

A strike proper would be illegal.
Therefore the strike will be a fictitious one,
i.e we will simply come together as a mark of discontent.

On the 24th of April Premo, Pressens Morgontjänst, will launch a new trakt system for the distribution of morning newspapers at the Matteus filial. The construction of the new system has been done without any consideration for its employees. Salaries will be cut with 25 to 35% (for present-day 2-trakt buds). Also, no longer will we fulfil the requirements for being a member of an unemployment fund – thus Premo throws us out of a social security system.

We have suggested to Premo to set up a reference group. In such a group we might contribute with our experience to the reorganization of the trakt system. The idea has been turned down by the company. Such a response is not a natural one for a Swedish place of work.

Thus, we have done our best as loyal employees to influence Premo in an orderly manner, but all in vain. We have also tried in cooperation with the trade union to negotiate with Premo, with no result (rather the union man was told off). This is not what one expects from a civilized partner on the labour market.

WE SEE NO OTHER OPTION FOR THE MOMENT THAN THIS FICTITIOUS STRIKE AGAINST PREMO.

WE DEMAND A NEW TRACT SYSTEM THAT OFFERS
  AT LEAST 3 HOURS PER DAY FOR THOSE WHO SO WANT
  A TRANSPORT PLAN THAT GUARANTEES THIS
