Train drivers and conductors will get more variety in their work, NS agreed with unions VVMC, FNV and CNV while discussing the new schedule for 2017 on Tuesday, ANP reports.

Rail workers were concerned that the new schedule, which starts on December 11th, will bring back the so-called "round around the church". This term refers to drivers and conductors working on fixed routes. On Monday drivers and conductors stopped working on Amsterdam Central Station to discuss this.
