Contract catering: collective labor agreement negotiations

March 22 2022

The current Collective Labor Agreement for Contract Catering runs until 1 April 2022. In a number of rounds in January, February and March, we are working on a new Collective Labor Agreement with agreements for different groups of employees. The current employees who now fall under the collective labor agreement for contract catering and (new) employees who work in contract catering and catering. This will then become the Collective Labor Agreement for Hospitality with a broader scope than the current Collective Labor Agreement for Contract Catering. In addition to discussions on the entire collective labor agreement, the social partners also simultaneously discuss the specific situation and employment conditions for the inflight sector.

The final work

On Monday 21 March 2022, employers and trade unions discussed the employment conditions for current employees in contract catering and (new) employees in hospitality. We're almost there and we just need to dot the 'i'. We still need final legal advice from the Working Sphere working group and the working group that informs the parties to the collective labor agreement about a generation pact arrangement for the sector and the inflight. The social partners would like this, but we still need advice on how to arrange this.

on the 21e In March we also negotiated the separate paragraph for inflight. We mainly talked about wages and travel costs. We are taking steps towards each other on these points, but there is still some work to be done before we get there together. So to be continued.

If we cannot come to an agreement, there is a real possibility that there will no longer be a sector collective labor agreement for contract catering, hospitality and inflight. Employers have linked the continued existence of employers' association Veneca to the realization of the collective labor agreement for hospitality.
