The Director of RCN has today reached a negotiation result with the trade unions about a new Collective Labour Agreement (CLA) for Central Government civil servants in the Caribbean Netherlands for a period of three years.
With this negotiation result a rather decent salary increase of 3.75% is due to all Central Government public servants in the coming years.
In addition, a long cherished wish of the unions to come to a thirteenth month is realized step by step. With this negotiation result all civil servants will gradually receive a percentage end-of-year bonus of 7% in 2020 instead of the current nominal end-of-year bonus of USD 1250. In addition, the minimum amount, compared with the current year-end bonus, will increase to USD 1500, so that all Central Government civil servants in the Caribbean Netherlands will benefit.
With these measures all Central Government civil servants in the Caribbean Netherlands will benefit from the economic development in Netherlands.
The members of the unions will now be consulted on the content of this outcome of the negotiation.
