Metal and Technology: 24-hour strike call

On Tuesday, November 16, 2021, our members received a general strike call for the metal and technology collective labor agreement. A number of colleagues rightly pointed out that it was not very clear from this that the strike of tomorrow (November 18 2021) concerns a strike for all colleagues who working at companies in the Eindhoven/South-East Brabant region.

We do all actions together with FNV and CNV. A list of strike locations has been agreed in consultation with an indication of the region that corresponds to it. We send these action calls to all employees who are registered in our membership file as working for a company that falls under the Collective Labor Agreement for Metal and Technology. Our membership file only contains your home address and company. That is why we do not know exactly in which region you work. We therefore ask you to make an assessment yourself whether you fall under the region for which a 24-hour strike is being declared. Of course you can and can participate in a promotion that is elsewhere. For the most impact, it is good to also check in your company whether colleagues from De Unie participate or that you see that FNV and CNV colleagues are organizing for the 24-hour strike.

24-hour strikes until November 23, 2021

Hereby the calls for the next few days including region.

Donderdag November 18th, 2021 is there a strike call for members working at companies in the Eindhoven/South-East Brabant region. Between 09.00 a.m. and 11.00 a.m. can you report to the strike street in the Wim van Doorne parking lot Music kiosk on the Alberdingk Thijmlaan 1 in Eindhoven.

For Friday 19 November 2021 we call on you to be in the Rotterdam/South Holland/North-West Brabant region to go on strike. If you work for a company from that region and you want to strike or show solidarity, intervene 09.00 a.m. and 10.00 a.m. to parking lot P3 and P4 Stadium De Kuip at Olympiaweg 54 in Rotterdam.

Op Monday, November 22, 2021 there is a strike in the Region Oldenzaal/Overijssel. You can register as a striker that day or hand in your solidarity statement at Sportpark 't Venterinck (FC Berghuizen) at 37 Schapendijk in Oldenzaal. We are in between 09.00 a.m. and 10.00 a.m.

Further actions and regions are planned. We are busy in consultation with municipalities to find the right locations to organize the drive-thru strike. In the Netherlands, you must properly request permission for this. Only when we have that permission can we move forward with the actions. Keep an eye on your mailbox for an update on the promotions in your region.

fill you strike registration form of solidarity statement pre-order and take it to the strike drive-thru. We use this system to make the strikes go through coronaproof.
