Second day of the collective labor agreement negotiations Motor vehicles and Two-wheelers

The second meeting took place on Wednesday 19 September 2018 to arrive at a new Collective Labor Agreement for Motor Vehicles and Two-wheelers. The second day is traditionally used to further substantiate the proposals and to take careful steps in the negotiation. 

The BOVAG showed us a presentation about the current salaries in the sector compared to the whole of the Netherlands. Probably with the aim of showing us that the remuneration in the sector is doing well. A dangerous signal if, on the other hand, insufficient skilled workers are available for the sector.

We know that employees deliver real added value and that should be appreciated. This includes a good pay rise and also sufficient opportunities, in time and money, to be able to follow the rapid developments within the sector!

I hope that after the next round of negotiations I can provide more information on the possible results. That is too early now.

To achieve good results is a strong one vakbond important. If a colleague is not yet a member, point out the importance of De Unie at the negotiating table. Together we can make a case for good agreements!

If you have any questions about the negotiations, please email

The next round of consultations will take place on Wednesday 3 October 2018.
