Netherlands - Police unions reach agreement - December 31, 2015

Police unions and the justice ministry have reached agreement on a new police pay package involving a 6.5% wage rise over three years. The 6.5% rise will be spread over 2015, 2016 and 2017. In addition, police workers will get a one-off pay of €1,000. The deal follows months of industrial action and still has to be approved by members. The collective agreement also includes new arrangements on overtime and standby charges. Thousands of police officers were involved in the campaign in support of a better pay deal.
