Trade unions want a single collective labor agreement for primary and secondary education
De AOb wants, together with other education unions, to arrive at a single collective labor agreement for all primary and secondary education. The unions also want to investigate whether they can now negotiate directly with the minister about the collective labor agreement.
That leaves the joint unions AOb, CNV Education, FNV and FvOv know today in a Verkaring. In the Education agreement that employers, unions and the education minister concluded last April, the parties have already agreed to work together on a number of important topics for education. One of those subjects is to come to a single collective labor agreement for basic education. The ministry has appointed a scout to investigate this process.
Put in a joint piece AOb, CNV Education, FNV and FvOv explain what they consider important elements in arriving at a single collective labor agreement for primary and secondary education. Conducting collective labor negotiations directly with the minister is one of those points. "The unions are happy to discuss this with the minister, the employers' organizations and the scout," says AObdirector Thijs Roovers.
