Holland-CasinoThe state owned Holland Casino and union leaders have now reached an agreement following a period of strike action by casino workers on a new pay deal.

 

The 3,000 strong work force in 14 different casino locations run by Holland Casino will now be awarded a one-off payment of 4.5% over 2016 in back pay and a rise of 2% for the current year and for 2018.

 

Also for 2019 and 2020 the wage rise will be in line with the national average wage.

 

Holland Casino chief executive Erwin van Lambaart told reporters on the deal, ‘This deal gives our people security, particularly as have also agreed that there will be no forced redundancies while the agreement is in force.”

 

Back in 2014 the government agreed to sell off the state owned Holland Casino to the private sector however a final vote by the upper house of parliament has yet to make a final vote of approval.
