Netherlands: Public transport strike to go ahead

Bus, tram, and train drivers in the Netherlands will go ahead with a strike this week, after trade union CNV said a settlement was unlikely before June 27, according to Dutch News.

Most regional public transport services will be stopped by the 72-hour strike, which has come after a dispute over pay and working conditions.

The union postponed the action last week to extend the negotiating period.

Regional services operated by Arriva, Connexxion, EBS, Keolis, and Qbuzz will be affected. Trains operated by NS and Arriva will run, with the exception of Arriva trains in Limburg. Trams and buses in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and The Hague, which are covered by separate labor agreements, will also run.
