ABN AMRO and trade unions reach consensus on CLA

News item -

The negotiations on January 31, 2018 between ABN AMRO and the trade unions FNV Finance, De Unie and CNV Vakmensen saw a positive outcome regarding the new collective labour agreement. A deal was finally reached after the trade unions requested negotiations be resumed following the negative sentiments expressed at the member consultation meeting. The difference between ABN AMRO's final offer on 20 December 2017 and the new offer is a structural salary increase of 2% as of January 2018 (as opposed to a 1% structural increase as of 1 July 2018). The trade unions have agreed to put the proposed package to their members’ vote in the coming two weeks.

"I'm very happy that we've managed to reach an agreement. We listened to the feedback on our final offer and made some adjustments. I believe this outcome and the employment benefits package will contribute to our employees feeling appreciated and valued", says Kees van Dijkhuizen CEO of ABN AMRO. 

The collectively agreed employee benefits will span two years, from 1 January 2018 to 1 January 2020. The new CLA will be in effect from 1 January 2018, subject to it being endorsed by the member consultation meeting.
