AMSTERDAM – The trade union confederation FNV wants to put an end to the renewal of temporary contracts. The union says that employers do not invest enough in their temporary workers, putting them at risk of only ever finding temporary jobs.

This spring, union confederation CNV also urged that the Law on flexible work and security be amended to combat the increasing use of "disposable personnel."

The Law on flexible work and security stipulates that an individual may only be offered three temporary contracts in three years' time. This number may only be increased if employers and unions agree on this in collective labour agreements.

The FNV wants this maximum to be lowered to two temporary contracts in two years' time, a spokesperson for the FNV confirmed on Tuesday.
