Municipal workers in Amsterdam staged a two-hour strike on 19 May to demand a new collective agreement with decent pay, clear employment agreements, steady jobs and more respect for their work. Protests in other cities are expected in June. All municipal workers fall under the collective agreement of the municipalities, which expired over a year ago. Trade unions have tabled wage demands of 2.5% in 2013 and 3% in 2014, in a long negotiation process.
