Because of various rumors according to which the redundancy payment will be taxed from on, many of our colleagues have decided to retire or are understandably worried for the future.
The POST Federation advices everybody not to rush into actions before we get clear answers on all pending matters related not only to the severance pay but also to the prospects of the HELLENIC POST as well as another issue that has been raised lately concerning the question of whether or not the HELLENIC POST falls under chapter A of law 3429 (public sector salary scale etc). Our Federation is taking all the necessary steps and negotiating with all the competent officials and we will inform you timely.
In any case, according to the relevant bill, nothing changes in relation to the redundancy payment, which will remain free of tax up to the sum of 60.000,00 Euros. Of course, the bill will have to be passed in order to be sure.
As for the rest, those who have secured pension rights may make their decisions taking into consideration all factors related to salary, pension etc, while at the same time closely following the developments.
