Feedback consultation with VDL

On Wednesday, September 4, 2019 De Unie once again held consultations with the other unions involved about progress with VDL in Hengelo.



Following the consultation in May 2019, it was indicated that VDL wants to improve communication. We see that this has actually been taken up and that Town-hall meetings take place at fixed times (once per quarter).

Status of relocations

VDL indicates that they are in the final phase and that 50% of those involved now have another job within VDL. In addition, individual solutions have been found with employees. At the moment there are still a few situations that require extra attention.

Guidance committee

With the arrival of Frans Masseling as independent chairman, the supervisory committee is in full swing.

Job evaluation

VDL indicates that the process has started. At the end of this year, it is expected to have a complete picture of the consequences. If you are confronted with this in the coming period and have additional questions about it, please feel free to contact Hans Scholten or me (Hans Korver).

Follow-up consultation

It has been agreed that at the end of this year, as soon as more is known about the job evaluation, we will again consult with VDL.
