KLM’s response to FNV’s industrial action today

The industrial action carried out by a group of FNV-affiliated ground personnel has for now not had a significant operational impact on passengers. This tallies with expectations because KLM employees always execute their tasks safely and in accordance with the applicable rules.

FNV once again announced this morning that it would be calling on FNV-affiliated ground personnel to work “strictly” according to the rules. KLM does not expect this call to action to have any negative operational consequences either. If, in carrying out such actions, FNV hopes to achieve the same consequences as the courts aimed to prevent, FNV is acting in contravention of the judgement.

KLM reasserts its position that FNV is nonetheless calling for action instead of entering into dialogue. And KLM reiterates its invitation to enter into further discussion.
