The trade union FNV reports this after consultation with the management of Schiphol Airport Retail (SAR), the company behind the See Buy Fly stores. The old collective labor agreement had ended, but negotiations did not take place because of the wish of SAR to cut back a number of arrangements.
SAR started an employment conditions scheme (avr) for new employees, which offers fewer rights than a collective labor agreement. The union and staff saw this as an attempt to limit rights, such as employee participation, and went on strike.
Director Simon Asmus announced earlier this year that he had to cut irregularity allowances due to the corona crisis in order to keep the stores viable. When he stated this, he said FNV and CNV no longer wanted to negotiate.
In July and last week, SAR staff stopped working for several hours. In addition to stopping the terms of employment scheme, they demanded that wages stop falling further and that the schedules become more predictable and known earlier. FNV says it will closely monitor whether SAR also responds to this.
