Netherlands - DHL agrees on more direct labour - June 30, 2017

The trade union FNV and CNV reached an agreement with the DHL management that will lead to more direct labour. The parcel delivery company has committed itself to an increase of the share of the workforce that has permanent contracts up to 80%. The unions see this as a confirmation of their position that delivery companies can do without outsourcing and flexjobs. The collective agreement that applies to 1200 workers also leads to a pay increase with 5.6% in two years and an on-off pay of 500 euro. Trade union FNV used during the negotiations the outcome of a survey, organised in the summer of 2016 among the workforce.
