Metalektro: No progress in negotiations

On September 23, we spoke with employers for the second time about a new CLA Metalektro. Unfortunately, we have to conclude that there is still little progress in the consultation.

Response employers

The day started with a response from employers to our proposals. In short, it comes down to the fact that the FME has not yet responded to any substantive proposals. The only point of view of the FME that is clear: they want a collective labor agreement without significant cost increases.

Because the employers have not yet given any substantive response, we have also stuck to all our proposals. We did, however, explain to them again why our points are important for the employees in the Metalektro. So there is still a lot of work to be done!

How further?

The next meeting will be on Wednesday 7 October 2020. We really need to take steps to arrive at a new collective labor agreement. We don't have much time left. We will keep track of the outcome of that consultation de Unie-members of course!
