KLM inks pay deal with FNV union members

On September 6, 2016, Dutch flag carrier KLM and the Dutch Trade Union Federation (FNV) reached a collective labour agreement for ground staff.

KLM stated that is was pleased with the result as it “falls in line with goals set for Perform2020 and within the proposals that KLM made in mid-July”.

KLM will hold discussions will all five ground trade unions soon to discover whether everyone can agree to the formulation of KLM’s proposal.

“I’m pleased that this agreement has brought clarity for all ground staff. The proposal states that all ground staff will receive a better profit sharing scheme, among other things, including a guaranteed dividend of EUR 1600 in 2016 and a one-time 1% dividend in 2017,” said Aart Slagt, Executive Vice President HR & Industrial Relations KLM. “From 2018, they will see a guaranteed 1% rise in pay. On top of that, KLM will extend the employment agreement laid down in the current collective labour agreement. The proposal is extremely important to KLM and its staff, and I hope that we can leave this period of unrest behind us.”
