Advice, help and questions: we are here for you!

You have doubts about a situation in the field of work, care or income. Maybe your boss says something that you totally disagree with, he forces you to wear certain clothes or it turns out that your collective labor agreement is not entirely correct. What are you doing then? You may not always think about it, but you can quickly call us to discuss any questions you have. The vision of one of our experts often offers you new insights, so that you know how to handle a situation.

What do we do if vakbond for you?

As a vakbond we realize the best working conditions, collective labor agreements and social plans. This is done for groups of people. However, we also do a lot for you as an individual. For example, we help you, together with our employment lawyers and advocates, to resolve a (legal) conflict with your employer.

If you have questions or uncertainties about your collective labor agreement or company regulations, we can answer or explain them for you. If your employer does not stick to the agreements made, we can solve this together with you. This can vary from verbal advice to going to court. This always in consultation with you.

You can also count on us if you need advice about your unemployment benefit or WIA benefit or if you are looking for help with an objection to a decision by the UWV. We can also answer questions about your pension for you as a Union member. Testing your new employment contract is no problem for us. Does this contain a non-competition clause? Then we advise you about this.

We know the working methods and methods of almost all parties with whom I consult. This way we know how we can get the most out of it for you. Our knowledge is not limited to the above matters.
