Employees of DAF in Eindhoven are to go on strike again. They will down tools on Thursday and Friday in support of a better collective labour agreement (CAO).

It is the third time in a few weeks that Eindhoven DAF employees are campaigning. Just a few days ago, they demonstrated in front of the company gate, then with other metal workers from, among other companies, VDL and ASML in the Eindhoven Stadswandelpark.

Working hours

The employees demand a salary increase of 3.5 percent and better employment conditions. For example, young employees with a flexible contract must have more opportunities for a permanent job. They also want more control over working hours. Older employees should be able to reduce their working hours more easily.

The negotiation of a new collective labour agreement has reached an impasse. The employers do not want to go beyond a 2.5 percent wage increase.

Work will also be halted at VDL Nedcar in Born and Nijmegen on Thursday and Friday.
