Netherlands -New collective agreement at KLM -April 10, 2015

Trade unions and KLM have agreed on a new collective agreement with a guarantee that there will not be any mandatory redundancies until 2020.

Trade unions and KLM have agreed on a new collective agreement, which the unions will recommend to their members. The agreement follows long negotiations, which were complicated by the company’s poor economic performance. In the agreement, KLM will guarantee that there will not be any mandatory redundancies until 2020 and compose buyout packages for employees who want to leave earlier. The agreement also contains a general wage freeze. The agreement, if adopted, will run until 30 June 2016.
