Police strike enters second day

Police officers in parts of Zuid Holland, Gelderland and Groningen are taking industrial action on Thursday in the second day of strikes around the country.

The strikes are support of a pay claim. The NPB police union wants a 3.3% rise a year and an increase in bonuses and healthcare contributions, while the ACP union is calling for a flat €200 extra per month for all officers.
The government, which yesterday urged unions to return to the negotiating table, is offering 6.75% over two years.
A national strike has been called for January 23, 28 and 31.
