GKN Fokker: Negotiation result, invitation to members meeting

April 28, 2022

After long negotiations, we have reached a negotiated result to cover the closure of Fokker Elmo and Fokker Landing Gear. We have been able to make good agreements for people who come to Papendrecht, but also for people who do not come along.

We explain in broad outline what the negotiation result entails.

Take me to Papendrecht

If you live within a travel time of less than 60 minutes from Papendrecht, the transfer arrangement applies to you.

In the transfer arrangement, agreements have been made about:

  • Extra travel costs: 0,27 cents net for the first 3 years
  • Compensation for extra travel time
  • Use pool car if you want to travel together
  • Flexible working hours
  • One-off premium of a gross monthly salary

The transfer arrangement may also apply to employees with a temporary contract. Temporary workers may also be entitled to a number of parts of the transfer scheme.

Not coming to Papendrecht

If you live at a travel time of more than 60 minutes from Papendrecht, the departure arrangement applies to you. This arrangement applies when your work is moved to Papendrecht.

In the departure arrangement, agreements have been made about:

  • Termination payment based on transition payment 2019 x 2 (separate agreements for the elderly)
  • Budget of € 4.000 on top of the termination fee
  • Exemption from work of 2 months
  • Budget for outplacement and training

If you try to work in Papendrecht but it doesn't work out, you can still make use of the departure scheme within 6 months. If you are able to work from home at least 60%, then the departure arrangement does not yet apply to you.

The whole result

At the moment, the texts of the negotiation result are still being written. As soon as these are available, you will receive them and you can vote on them. You can already get a more detailed explanation here proofread.
