THE RESULTS OF THE ELECTIONS OF POST'S 33rd CONVENTION

The 33rd Convention of POST, which took place in the island of Rhodes from 20 October to 1 November 2014, was successfully concluded. During its works the participants drew up a report on the progress of the previous term and elected the Federation's new Executive Committee and other administrative bodies.

The Convention was attended by elected representatives from all over Greece and the Presidents of our Primary Level Unions, representing and speaking on behalf of all the Hellenic Post employees.

For the first time, the Convention was attended by 20 foreign delegations, the Presidents of the Universal Post Union and the European Association as well as the heads of the postal syndicates of the biggest European countries and many others, who made detailed presentations on the problems of the postal services sector as well as its future prospects and labor-related issues.

The Convention was also attended by delegates of all political parties, a representative of the Greek General Confederation of Labor (in Greek: ΓΣΕΕ), a multi-membered deputation of the Hellenic Post Administration headed by its President, the Deputy Regional Governor of the South Aegean, the Mayor of Rhodes, the President of Rhodes' Labor Center as well as various bodies of the island's local authorities, who presented their opinions and made interventions.

The President of the Federation Mr. George Vassilopoulos, in his speech, sent a clear message to all directions:

“The Post Office is not for sale”

We will not just give away 186 years of service to our country and to the Greek people.

The syndicates will not be terrorized by anybody.

During the two days of our Convention, through fertile and substantive discussions, all participants expressed their opinions on all issues that concern the Post Office and its employees and made a report of the previous three-year term.

For your full information, all material relevant to the Convention, such as the resolution, our views and the positions of all participants, will be published on our web site.

The works of the Convention were concluded with the elections for the new members  of the Administration.

177 persons voted.

176 of the voters were elected representatives of the 49 Associations-members of POST.

One of the voters was imposed through anti-constitutional channels and procedural tricks by DAK (Dynamic Renovation Movement) and DAKE (Independent Democratic Movement of Employees) and by an association founded shortly before the Convention, having its headquarters at a cafe in the Attica region.
