The AVEBE potato starch concern reached new collective labour agreement with the trade unions

Veendam, the Netherlands,  07-12-2013 — /EuropaWire/ —  The AVEBE potato starch concern has reached a new CLA with the trade unions.

In doing so, broad attention was paid to sustainable deployment and vitality of the AVEBE personnel. For example, the age of seniority leave, a scheme by which personnel can gradually work less hours in the period leading up to pension age, has been geared, in phases, to the new statutory norms. Agreement was also reached on raising the age at which personnel receive extra days’ leave.

AVEBE is also to introduce working groups in consultation with the trade unions, to examine the options for sustainable deployment of personnel and for reduction of night work. The results of these working groups will form the basis for negotiations of the new CLA in 2014.

In the new CLA, which is valid until 1 October 2014, a structural wage increase of 2% has been agreed from 1 April 2013 and a further increase of 1% from 1 April 2014.
