Municipal employers make offer but nothing from hospital employers

Netherlands

The VNG local government employers’ organisation has come up with an offer of a 4% pay rise for the year 2024. The FNV trade union has acknowledged this as an opening to proper negotiations, it says it falls some way short of its main demand for an 8% rise pay increase on top of a flat-rate €100 increase. The VNG is also yet to respond on a number of other issues including leave and early retirement. The negotiations resume on 30 October, when the FNV will also raise concerns around workloads. Meanwhile, the University Medical Centres employer organisation has yet to come up with a specific offer in the negotiations where the FNV is also setting its sights on an 8% pay rise.
