Event

Several unions representing KLM ground staff at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) have threatened to carry out another four-hour strike in the week of Monday, September 16, through Sunday, September 22, to demand better pay and working conditions. They did not immediately announce a date or time, but said that these details would be announced at least 48 hours in advance. The strike was called off following the airline's indication of willingness to address issues concerning pay and working conditions.

Delays, modified timetables, and last-minute cancelations are likely during and following the work stoppage. Associated protests are possible in the coming days and weeks.
