More union opposition to pension plan

Trade unions affiliated to the CNV federation are also coming out against the pension agreement worked out between unions and employers last year, Nos television says.

The police union ACP has started a discussion on the plans on its website, because of fears ‘decisions could be taken behind closed doors’.
Union members are only now realising that the agreement is a blank cheque for employers, ACP chairman Gerrit van de Kamp told Nos.
Members of the FNV union federation earlier expressed their opposition to the proposal. In particular, they are unhappy at plans to make pension increases dependent on stock exchange movements because all the risk would be passed to pensioners.
