Netherlands - Employers make concession after ‘final’ offer - September 13, 2009

After union members in the waste and environment sector overwhelmingly rejected the employers’ “final” offer of a 1% pay increase, the employers made a further improved offer. The 1% pay increase backdated to 1 June will stand, but a further increase will be paid if inflation rises above 1% at the end of the year. The ABVAKABO FNV union had indicated that it was willing to be flexible on pay if the employers would make some guarantees on jobs; discussions on employment in the sector are continuing.
