Cleaners have been able to reach a deal for higher pay after week-long strikes and protests. Part of their new collective labour agreement also states that the first two days of their sick leave will be paid, according to union FNV Bondgenoten. The cleaners are expected to be back at work this evening or Thursday, the NOS reports.
Cleaners have been on strike for two weeks, after several smaller actions before that. Employers' organization for cleaning companies, OSB, has invited trade unions for negotiations "to get out of the impasse." The main effect of the strike has been dirty trains.
