Netherlands -Deal after actions at Albert Heijn distribution centres -March 22, 2013

Workers at Albert Heijn distribution centres went on strike for higher wages and more job security. The members of the FNV union refused the 1.76% pay offer, while trade union CNV had accepted. The FNV was demanding a wage increase of at least 2.5%, in line with inflation, as well as more job security and a regular contract as direct hires for temp agency workers who have been with Albert Heijn for at least 18 months. The company has now agreed that people who worked regularly for the company on agency contracts will be offered a formal job after three years. Also the redundancy packages for staff that lose their jobs up to 2016 will improve.
