René Paas to leave CNV trade union

René Paas, who has headed the CNV trade union federation for the past four years, is to leave in September to take over the helm at the association of social services directors.

‘I have reached the limits of my effectiveness,’ Paas told the Telegraaf. ‘I think it is good for myself and the CNV if I put my efforts into something else.’
