One day strike called as negotiations stall

Netherlands Netherlands
After the last day of negotiations on 20 October and with no new offer from the employers, the FNV Abvakabo public service union has called a one-day strike among welfare workers. The union had been looking for an increase to protect purchasing power, initiatives to make the sector more attractive to new workers and an agreement on employment levels. The employers want a below-inflation increase and no agreement on employment. In fact, the union believes that the employers want to see more employees replaced by volunteers or the self-employed. The CNV Pubieke Zaak union may also join the action depending on the result of a consulation with members.
