The congresses of four trade unions affiliated to the confederation FNV voted in favour of a merger that will create a single FNV trade union organisation. Following the positive vote by FNV Bondgenoten, which voted against the merger earlier on in October, the merger will go ahead. From 1 January 2015, former unions Abvakabo FNV (public sector), FNV Bondgenoten (private sector), FNV Bouw (construction), FNV Sport and the FNV confederation will merge to become the new FNV. With FNV Bondgenoten on board, all large affiliates have opted into the merger. The congress of a fifth FNV affiliated trade union, FNV Kiem (artists and printing industry), voted on 20 December with a 66% majority to enter talks for joining the new FNV later on, while several smaller unions have voted to remain affiliated but not to participate in the merger.
