There is a chance that the strikes in DAF will soon be over.
The FNV Metal Union and the CNV Union personnel, want to further negotiate regarding a new CAO (collective employment agreement) for the metal employees. During the last weeks, the unions conveyed to their members that the negotiations had reached a deadlock. The current CAO proposals are unacceptable to the ‘metalektro’ (metal-electro) sector.
Apparently, the unions want to try once more to convince the employers organisation – FME, to respect the metal employees’ wishes and to resume the negotiations.
Strikes will continue until a CAO is reached. Last Thursday, an unannounced strike took place in DAF. It was the 10th strike day in Eindhoven. Throughout the country more than 38,000 strike days took place.
