Dec 21 '16 13:10

NS train drivers and conductors that are members of union VVMC will be striking in the Randstad region on Friday, the union announced on Wednesday. NS expects that the strike will have "major impact across the country" that may last the entire day, NU.nl reports. 

The strike is scheduled from the start of the morning until 11:00 a.m. Drivers and conductors stationed in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Hoofddorp will be striking. The union could not say how many people will actually lay down their work, but did say that the willingness to take action is great.

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.
