Social partners split on redundancy law

27 August 2007

AMSTERDAM – The cabinet's plans to simplify redundancy legislation have split the trade unions and the employers' organisations. The social partners will present a divided recommendation on Thursday.

While employers would like to be able to dismiss personnel more easily, the trade unions are demanding that the cabinet's plans be scrapped entirely.

Trade union confederation FNV director Wilna Wind said this on Monday during a meeting to discuss redundancy legislation .Unions also assume that coalition parties Labour PvdA and Christian Democrat CDA will withdraw their support for the proposals from CDA minister Piet Hein Donner (Social Affairs) for revision of the law governing dismissals.
