Tempo-Team will hold up with the Outsourcing business unit during the course of the year. The temporary employment agency, part of the Randstad group, has recently been discredited on several occasions because temporary employees would receive far too little money through Outsourcing. Last week, trade union FNV Randstad summoned € 8 million in overdue wages to Outsourcing employees at PostNL. That company now completely stops with these employment relationships, which is known as ‘contraction’. The company wants to take a stand in the discussion on the subject, and “attaches great importance to equal pay for package sorters,” reports in a press release. The model of Tempo-Team Outsourcing would have been used to evade the collective labor agreement. Normally, temporary workers are entitled to the same wage as their permanent colleagues. With an intermediary such as Outsourcing that rule expires. That would also have happened at tobacco factory BAT Niemeyer and the glass factory in Leerdam. Tempo-Team maintained and maintains that it has always complied with all laws and regulations and has been a good employer. “For example, the remuneration for Outsourcing employees is market-based, benchmark with other companies within the logistics sector and updated annually and coordinated with the works council.” The rules do provide “a lot of ambiguity”, according to the broadcaster in a press release. Outsourcing stops because of “the social debate”. Tempo-Team wants “clarity and peace, in the interest of employees and customers”. The customers and employees of Outsourcing switch to standard temporary employment structures.
