The collective labor agreement Taxi transport is often seen as complicated. Social Fund Mobility (SFM) wants to change this with a new way of providing information: namely with animation videos. This should make the collective labor agreement more comprehensible and accessible.

Employers and employees must adhere to the collective labor agreement, but in practice the collective labor agreement is often experienced as complicated. “Because many rights are derived from the collective labor agreement, it must be legally correct and properly written. However, this also makes it more difficult for many to understand,” explains Henk van Gelderen of SFM. “We cannot make the collective labor agreement simpler ourselves, but the explanation about this can be done.”

This was already done earlier with, among other things, the ‘collective labor agreement in comprehensible language’. However, this turned out not to be the ideal solution either. “People still don’t always experience this as easy to understand and, moreover, no rights can be derived. For that you have to go to the formal version again.”

That is why we have now opted for information through animation videos . In total there are twelve short videos in which the most important topics of the collective labor agreement are discussed. The first three videos deal with the themes of sick pay, allowances and scaling and salary increase. A new video is added every week. The Transition Personnel at Transition Transport Contracts (OPOV) scheme will also be discussed.

Preventing violations due to ignorance “We think animations appeal to people more than the written collective agreement. A picture says more than a thousand words,” says Van Gelderen. “It’s a fun and modern way of acquiring knowledge. In addition, a better explanation can be given in a shorter time frame.” The main features of the collective labor agreement are discussed and if people want to know more, they can read further in the collective agreement via a link.

What the Social Fund Mobility ultimately wants is that the collective agreement is properly complied with and employers don’t have to make mistakes out of ignorance. According to Van Gelderen, this still happens regularly. “We hope that employers and employees will gain more knowledge of the collective labor agreement so that they can also raise the alarm themselves in the event of abuses. We do inspect on behalf of the entire industry, but it is also good if they can raise matters themselves.”
