KLM and pilots union VNV reached an agreement on a pension scheme for the pilots, the union confirmed to NU.nl. This means that all planned labor actions are now off the table and both parties stopped ongoing lawsuits. 

According to VNV, with this agreement KLM is preventing "rising labor unrest among its pilot corps". The union would not expand on the price details of the agreement.

KLM CEO Pieter Elbers thinks it currently more important to invest in new aircraft and equipment than to increase wages for the airline's employees, he said in an internal webcast for employees that Het Parool managed to see. The airline wants to invest another 2 billion euros over the next four years, but that will not go towards wage increases.
