Metalektro - Thales Hengelo: Call for action Metalektro September 14, 2018

The past period has been by many members De Unie campaigned for a good collective labor agreement in the Metalektro. It is clear that there is plenty of enthusiasm among our members to stand shoulder to shoulder for a better future. A collective labor agreement that does justice to the current growth of the economy. What is good for the sector is good for the Netherlands.

Great success!

The various campaigns in the Netherlands have been a great success so far! Many thousands of employees have already called on employers to come up with better proposals. The earlier meeting in Hengelo at Thales and the surrounding companies also made a big impression.

We want a good collective labor agreement!

De Unie is committed to a fair and balanced collective labor agreement. In the coming period we will be present in various places when action is taken. Unfortunately, we will have to do this until we have reached agreement with the FME on a new collective labor agreement. We ask employees to also send a signal so that we can agree on a good collective labor agreement. We see that employers are increasingly making negative proposals for middle and higher incomes.

Examples are:

  • Generation pact only for basic collective labor agreement.
  • Wage proposals only for employees with a salary up to € 80.000.
  • Proposals to abolish the entire HP collective labor agreement!

You can read more in the Newsletter of 16 August 2018 or on website

We call on all employees to come to a lunch meeting at Thales in Hengelo.

We can use all the support. The employees can already show this support by taking a day off and coming to the action day.
