I pick C.

B is out since "and... and... " doesn't sound good.
D is out since their has no referrent.
E is out since "attrition, which provides.... for speeding attrition" is meaningless.

Between, A and C, I choose C. A has "attrition with increased penstion benefits...". Attrition does not have benefits, rather staff reduction does.
C is good in that it tries to improve attrition "by providing X and Y".

Can't be B, D, or E. The verb speed up is used to define acceleration. If it is just speed, it means go at a fast pace (and not necessarily accelerate).

Problem with A: the pronoun it can refer to either the labor agreement or the attrition process.

C appears to be the best choice despite an over-reaching use of the passive voice (grammatically correct, nevertheless).
