After intensive negotiations ABN AMRO and the trade unions FNV Bondgenoten, De Unie, CNV Dienstenbond and BBV reached an agreement in principle in the night from Monday to Tuesday on a new CAO (Collective Labour Agreement) for all employees of the bank.
This CAO provides for the harmonisation of the compensation & benefits of ABN AMRO and the former Fortis Bank Netherlands. In addition, employees will receive a pay rise of 1% from 1 January 2011 and a further 2% from 1 July 2012.
Alexandra Philippi, Director of Human Resources: “We are delighted with the result. Both at ABN AMRO and at the trade unions there was a will to resolve the matter quickly. That is important for our employees and a key step in the integration process." The new CAO is valid from 1 March 2010 to 1 January 2013. The harmonised compensation & benefits will take effect on 1 January 2011.
