Missing XPO workers' pension contributions
23 May 2019
The pension contributions of some XPO Logistics UK employees are not being credited to their pension ‘pots’, a problem that has arisen since the company moved to a new payroll provider.
The possibility of strike action into why the pension contributions of some XPO Logistics UK employees are not being credited to their pension ‘pots’ has been threatened by Unite the Union.
Unite national officer Matt Draper said:
“We know that three times in the last nine months some people have had their pension contributions deducted, but the monies have not been credited to their pension ‘pots’…
We understand that these problems have arisen since the company moved to a new payroll provider - we are calling for top executives to instigate a vigorous investigation into this imbroglio.
We don’t know how many of our nearly 3,000 members in UK have been affected – but one is too many.”
Apparently, members’ discontent is rising and there have been calls for industrial action ballots across XPO’s sites if the company can’t resolve this issue quickly.
At the annual meeting in New York, XPO executives said they are working with anyone affected and aiming to stop this reoccurring.
Matt Draper also pointed out that this is becoming a matter of trust and could lead to reputational damage for this global logistical giant which operates in 32 countries with 100,000 employees.
