The vote on Aedes' final offer resulted in an above-average response, which shows that this collective labor agreement negotiation is causing considerable stir. And we are not there yet, because the vote was against it.
More than 90% voted against and just under 10% voted in favor.
Of those who voted in favor, a third indicated that they would only vote in favor because they believe that Aedes is unable to stand up for its employees towards the government. They express their disappointment about Aedes. The other votes in favor have not explained their vote and/or actually think the final offer is sufficient.
Of those who voted against, just over half explained their vote. They indicate that the wage offer is too low, because people finally want to retain real purchasing power, and that Aedes should stay away from the company's own schemes and that the system of adjustment amounts should be stopped immediately.
Often, albeit slightly less often than the above points, the workload and the indignation about and disappointment in Aedes are mentioned.
What is going to happen now?
Naturally, we will also inform Aedes of the rejection of the final offer. We will then discuss the next steps with the framework. So keep a close eye on your mailbox, because action will be taken shortly.
In the meantime, what can you do now?
Talk to your colleagues, are they not members? Then try to make it clear to them that it is now really necessary to become a member De Unie! If they become members soon, they can also cast their vote at the upcoming ¾ meeting that will take place soon. (this meeting is necessary to initiate a strike). Also share the three previous newsletters with answers to the Aedes Q&A as much as possible. These messages are also available de Unie website, click here to read this.
