Public transport strike set for May 28 as pensions dispute continues

Dutch train drivers and public transport workers in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague will go on strike on May 28 in a campaign to have the state pension age frozen at 66 and to ensure pensions rise in line with inflation. The 24-hour strike may also include regional transport workers, who are still considering their position. The FNV trade union federation wants the cabinet to commit to keeping the state pension age at 66. It is being gradually increased in three-month increments and will hit 67 years and three months by 2024. ‘A lot of people who work on the railways started when they were young,’ said CNV railway union spokesman Evert Jan van de Mheen.’It is only logical that after such long service, they want to enjoy their pension. So the state pension age should not go up.’ The FNV had planned an all-out strike on March 28 but that was abandoned in the wake of the attack on a Utrecht tram which left four people dead. The engineering and construction workers unions will also stage an all-out strike on May 29 and the FNV has called on other sectors to join the campaign. Source ...

The Hague VVD wants to bring British universities to The Hague

The  VVD political party in The Hague has asked the gemeente to consider exploring  the possibilities of establishing  British university campus  in the city.  The Brexit situation is causing a lot of confusion for  European students. The VVD is concerned that  students  might not be able to study as  easily at a British university and increases in  tuition fees. Researchers at both Dutch and British universities are also concerned that research will not come under pressure. “For the academic world, it is very important that scientific information can be exchanged at international level,” says VVD councilor Chris van der Helm. “That is why it is desirable for our students to be able to gain affordable access to British universities after the Brexit and that British students can continue to visit our universities.” The  VVD  cited   Cambridge and Oxford as possible examples for entering into cooperation. ‘As an international city of peace and justice, The Hague can become an excellent European student hub. Certainly in the field of law, international relations and public administration, ‘says Van der Helm. ‘Large international organizations are established in The Hague that offer opportunities for European students to, for example, conduct research and gain work experience. The business climate is therefore ideal for British universities. This is really an opportunity that we should not miss. ”   Source: ...
