This is the CLA’s commitment to AWVN, MKB-Nederland and VNO-NCW employers’ organizations for this year. “For companies under pressure, this could mean zero line,” they said in the terms of employment memo that will be published on Monday. Even reducing the terms of employment cannot be ruled out. “
2021 will be a turbulent year. The uncertainty for companies is very large, says Raymond Potts, AWVN Director. “At the moment, there are still subsidy measures, but how strong would the basis be if subsidies were phased out and taxes were paid again?” The average wage increase is expected to be heading towards “about 1 percent”, which is less than the expected increase in prices.
According to AWVN, many employers are in trouble because they were unable to adequately respond to the crisis. They are therefore demanding the introduction of crisis clauses, whereby companies only pay an increase in collective labor agreement wages if sufficient profit is made.
“In sectors where things are going badly, we really have to start thinking about unconventional measures,” Potts said. “If employers learn one thing from this crisis, it is that working conditions should be able to respond better. In bad and good times.”
