Approximately 2,000 employees, representing 6 per cent of the Post Office’s total number of employees, will be affected by operational restructuring measures, Mediafax informs. Thus, some of them will be sacked, company president Daniel Neagoe stated. “Approved by the Administrative Board and by shareholders, the new organization chart’s goal is to render the Post Office’s activity flexible and fluid. Lowering the number of specialized branches will result in the disappearance of several leadership offices, some directors thus being set to become heads of divisions.Likewise, approximately 1,500 of the 7,100 postal subunits will be closed down through other operational restructuring measures,” Neagoe stated. Moreover, only four specialized branches – Integrated Services, Financial Services, Postage Stamp Plant and the National Postage Stamp Museum – will survive.
The current regional centres will become regional departments and will handle the transportation, real-estate administration, courier and IT services. Neagoe added that the organizational structures and the number of offices within central and regional administrations will be established by the end of June. Other reorganization measures will be applied too, including re-standardizing the activity of postmen and post office employees, as well as modifying the territorial branches’ schedules.
