Union prepares for upcoming bargaining in health and municipalities

Netherlands

The FNV trade union has set out its main demands in upcoming negotiations covering University Medical Centres. It is aiming for a wage increase of 5% as of 1 January 2021, with a minimum of €200 gross per month and an increase in the allowance covering irregular work. The union also wants other measures to make work in the sector more attractive with improved training and action to address the fact that many older workers are leaving because of sickness and ability to stay at work. Negotiations in municipal services will also get underway soon and a key demand will be for a EUR 500 bonus for frontline staff who are at risk of COVID-19 infection.
