Strike call Metal and Technology

The first three strike days are over. With almost 350.000 employees, Metal and Technology is one of the largest sectors in the Netherlands. Despite the fact that corona naturally creates an extra barrier to participate in strike actions, the turnout was good. However, we have not yet received an invitation from employers to come and discuss a better proposal for a new Collective Labor Agreement for Metal and Technology. Unfortunately, this means that there is no other option than to continue taking action. Support yourself and participate!

Just a reminder

We do all actions together with FNV and CNV. A list of strike locations has been agreed in consultation with an indication of the region that corresponds to it. We send these action calls to all employees who are registered in our membership file as working for a company that falls under the Collective Labor Agreement for Metal and Technology. Our membership file only contains your home address and company. That is why we do not know exactly in which region you work. We therefore ask you to make an assessment yourself whether you fall under the region for which a 24-hour strike is being declared. Of course you can and can participate in a promotion that is elsewhere. For the most impact, it is good to also check in your company whether colleagues from De Unie participate or that you see that FNV and CNV colleagues are organizing for the 24-hour strike.


24-hour strikes between 23 and 28 November 2021

Today we organized a great strike in Oldenzaal. This week there is only one action planned on Friday 26 November 2021.


Friday 26 November 2021 there is a 24-hour strike in the Region Gelderland/Arnhem-Nijmegen.

Colleagues working in companies in Gelderland can 8 and 10 o'clock register on P&R Nijmegen-North, Willem van Arenbergstraat, Nijmegen-Lent

(P&R Nijmegen-Noord is located next to the parking lot of the Pathé cinema, exit Oosterhout, A325 Nijmegen-Arnhem)


Further actions and regions are planned. We are busy in consultation with municipalities to find the right locations to organize the drive-thru strike. In the Netherlands, you must properly request permission for this. Only when we have that permission can we move forward with the actions. Keep an eye on your mailbox for an update on the promotions in your region.


The members of De Unie have received a strike registration form and a solidarity statement which they can take with them to the strike drive-thru after completing it. We use this system to ensure that the strikes take place safely. The idea is that you stay in the car as much as possible and go home after registration. Due to the restrictive corona measures, no further meetings and manifestations will take place.


For questions email to metal@unie.nl or call 06 5252 2034.


We hope to see you at one of the applicable locations.
