Lina Minderien?, CEO of Lithuania Post, said, “An employee who feels socially secure, is pleased with working conditions, and feels the satisfaction of his/her work and professional activities brings added value to the company.
“Together with trade unions, we have entered into a collective agreement, which states that in order to improve working conditions and promote employees’ motivation, workers’ salaries shall be revised, and in the case of favorable financial possibilities, shall be increased.
“We wish to ensure a competitive salary for our employees, therefore, taking into account the changes in the labor market in urban areas, salaries will be increased exclusively for postal workers in cities. It is very important that the company continues to meet the goals, and then, with good financial results and the shareholder’s approval, we can look into salaries of other employee positions during the first half of next year.”
