Regional public transit workers that are members of union FNV will be striking on Monday, the union announced on Tuesday, NOS reports.

According to FNV, employers are refusing to make agreements on lowering public transit workers' workload and on a decent wage increase for the workers.

The union did not say what regions will be affected or how long the strike will last. 

During a previous strike in April,  public transit in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague was unaffected because these employees fall under a separate collective bargaining agreement. NS trains also ran as usual.
