On November 12, 2009, the Supervisory Board of Austrian Post approved the potential transfer of civil servants working for Austrian Post whose jobs have been lost or are threatened to the federal government. At the presnt time, the basis is being established to enable civil servants to voluntarily transfer to the Austrian Ministry of Internal Affairs in the years to come.

"This solution is a significant step in the right direction. We will have the opportunity to give civil servants losing their jobs at Austrian Post new perspectives for the future. Austrian Post requires a decreasing number of employees due to the ongoing reduction in mail volumes. On the basis of this solution, we will be able to more effectively deal with the current structural change", says Austrian Post CEO Georg Pölzl. "Socially compatible job cuts cost money, but they represent a good investment in the future, and serve to sustainably improve our cost structure", he adds.
