No progress after fifth bargaining round in hospitals

Netherlands
Health sector unions - FNV Abvakabo, CNV Publieke Zaak and NU'91 - report no further progress towards a new collective agreement after the fifth round of negotiations in the hospital sector. The unions believe that they have come up with a number of positive proposals in terms of shifting flexible workers to permanent contracts, in relation to working hours and on initiatives on training to improve employability. In response, the employers only seem interested in getting rid of the redundancy scheme. The next round of bargaining is on 11 June.
