NU.nl reports that transport workers’ union CNV wants to give negotiators more time to solve the ongoing conflict between the employers and their employees.
Unless a deal can be reached either before or during the strike, then bus drivers will not get behind the wheel starting on Wednesday. This strike is set to last for 72 hours.
Bus drivers across the Netherlands have gone on shorter strikes in recent months as they continue to fight for improved working conditions. The labour union is calling for a 3.5 percent raise and a short break for drivers every two and a half hours.
