Ground unions stage protest at KLM Head Office

Summary

This afternoon around two hundred employees took part a union protest at KLM Head Office in Amstelveen. EVP HR & Industrial Relations Aart Slagt was presented with a “golden return ticket”.

Members of various unions for ground personnel arrived at Head Office by bus and were welcomed with coffee, tea and sandwiches. The presentation of the “golden return ticket” was a symbolic gesture underscoring the unions’ demand that KLM withdraw its proposals for a new collective labour agreement.

Aart Slagt briefly addressed the union representatives and invited all parties to swiftly reengage to discuss the situation that had arisen and resumption of negotiations for a new collective labour agreement.
