Breakthrough in negotiations between Verlinden and police unions – archyde

An agreement between Interior Minister Annelies Verlinden (CD&V) and the police unions seems to be in preparation. There is an average net increase of 70 euros.

The four police unions met again today with Interior Minister Annelies Verlinden (CD&V). About a month ago the unions organized actions that created major disabilities because negotiations on a wage increase and retirement were inadequate.

Before that, Verlinden had already decided that police officers could keep their affordable old-age provision in the years to come, with a pension from the age of 58. The collective bargaining was “constructive” and has resulted in a breakthrough today.

Originally, Verlinden received an amount of 100 million euros per year after the campaign, but this was increased to 120 million euros. According to calculations by the trade unions, this budget means an average pay increase of 70 euros net per employee.

In addition, there is an additional framework for teleworking compensation, a second negotiation phase in 2024 and the end of the career. The negotiations will continue on Thursday. The unions are ready to approach their members with these services. You can agree to or reject a possible definitive agreement.
