Ambulance workers approve new agreement

Netherlands Netherlands
Members of the FNV and CNV have voted in favour of a new collective agreement covering ambulance workers that will run until the end of 2018. The deal was reached at the beginning of November after a campaign of industrial action over several months. There will be basic pay increases of 1.0%, 1.2% and 1.5% in each of the next three years but workers will also benefit by around 1.25% a year from a new way of calculating holiday pay. Workers over 57 will no longer have to do night shifts and there is also a commitment to replace temporary jobs with permanent ones.
