Rail traffic in Nova Scotia will be stable again across the country on Friday due to a regional strike

NS announced on Wednesday that NS train traffic in the Netherlands will stop on Friday due to a regional strike. This is the second time in a short time.

FNV Spoor, VVMC and CNV announced a strike on Friday because trade unions and NS did not agree on a new collective labor agreement.

“Although the actions are regional, the scope is now wider and our trains and colleagues run throughout the Netherlands. Looking at all the options and experiences of the past strike days, we see no possibility of establishing a responsible, reliable timeline. That means that no trains can run in the Netherlands all day on Friday,” he says.

Later that day, NS announced that Schiphol would remain accessible via the Utrecht Central – Amsterdam South – Schiphol Airport route. “We recommend that passengers coming from other directions use alternative means of transport.” It is not yet known how many trains will run.

NS submitted an improved proposal for a new collective labor agreement on Tuesday. Among other things, this proposal requires Nova Scotia’s staff to receive an additional 5% salary. There will also be more room for holidays and inflation will be taken into account more.

The trade unions VVMC, FNV and CNV accepted the invitation from the NS to renegotiate a new collective labor agreement, but also said that the strikes would continue. Actions are also planned for the coming Tuesday and Thursday.
