The Netherlands’ temporary employers and their work hours have experienced a growth by 39% in the 5th period of 2021 (weeks 17-18, April 26th to May 23rd), when compared to the same period last year, said the Dutch Federation of Private Employment Agencies (ABU).
The same amount of work days have been detected, identical to the same period last year which means that nothing was corrected, everything remained the same in terms of work days.
At the same time, throughout the 5th period of 2021, the income was increased by 40% when compared to the same period during last year.
Similarly, the administrative sector experiences an increase of hours by 61% when compared to the same period in 2020, with the income increasing by 52%.
On the other hand, the industrial sector had a 24% increase on hours and a 26% on incomes in comparison to 2020.
The technical sector also had an increase of 31% of hours, with 35% increase on income compared to 2020 too.
Back in May, the NBBU and ABU (Dutch Association of Mediation and Temporary Employment Companies) came out with a statement in which they stated that they managed to reach an agreement with the LBV exchange union (National Employee Interest Association) on an unmodified extension for the current Collective Labour Agreement for employers who work in agencies temporary, until October 1st 2021.
