The cabin crew trade unions and KLM have reached a deal on a mutually balanced package of agreements for the next 15 months. The package states that there will be no forced dismissals for economic reasons during the collective bargaining period as long as the currently used instruments, such as more or less work or part time work, remain sufficient. The work and rest time regulation has been adjusted. Trip leave of 6 days or longer will be shorter by 1 day. Cabin crew will also give up 1 vacation day in the winter. The number of vacation days in the summer for employees aged 50 years and older remains 24 consecutive days.
