Netherlands -Unions demand improved offer at Delta Lloyd -November 29, 2011

Until recently, the Delta Lloyd insurance company had a rather good reputation with the unions, and its current economic position is strong. However, recently the Delta Lloyd management only proposed worsening pay and conditions for the new collective agreement, thus infuriating employees and their unions. According to FNV Bondgenoten union negotiator Bob Bolte working conditions deteriorated after the firm got a Stock Exchange listing two years ago. After a number of savings rounds, work pressure has been lifted to often unacceptable levels, employees say. On 24 November, the three unions involved (besides Bondgenoten also the CNV Dienstenbond and De Unie) have sent a letter to the Delta Lloyd management, asking them to come up with an improved offer.
