Executive Board doesn't want pay rise for DLO.
Trade unions are sounding out staff.
The unions have now made a counteroffer of a pay increase of 2.5 percent plus an improved social policy. For example, they want job security and no more what they call 'reorganizations by the back door'. Apparently, staff with insufficient chargeable hours are losing their jobs via poor evaluations in job appraisal interviews. The unions say many staff members are fed up with this way of working.
The unions have now consulted the rank and file about the plans in meetings held at Wageningen and Lelystad. More than 100 DLO staff turned up on 3 April in Wageningen and about 60 at the ASG in Lelystad on 9 April. On 11 April the unions will be talking to their members at the LEI in The Hague. They will use this input for their negotiations with the Executive Board.
