On 25 November 2021, the NBBU created an agreement with the trade unions FNV, CNV and De Unie on a new Collective Agreement for Temporary Agency Workers. The new NBBU CAO will start from 1 January 2022 to 2 January 2023. This will lead to changes in the NBBU CAO, the minimum wage and the user company remuneration. As of 3 January 2022, various elements are added on the user company remuneration. Read more below about it and what exactly will change.
User company remuneration is a term that appears in the Collective Agreement for Temporary Agency Workers (found in Chapter 4, Article 16). User company remuneration is a legally applicable renumeration and ensures that temporary workers earn and receive the same amount as permanent employees who perform the same work or a similar position.
User company remuneration includes:
From 3 January 2022, new elements are added in the user company remuneration. Read more about it below.
If the hirer gives one-off payment to employees who are directly hired, temporary employees are also entitled to this. Examples are the healthcare bonus and compensation for collective labor agreements after a delay. 13th month or year-end bonus are excluded.
If the hirer reimburses expenses related to working from home, temporary employees are also entitled to this.
Pay raise increases at the same time and with the same amount as the hirer. This means that from 1 January 2022, the temporary employee is entitled to an increase in accordance with the collective labor agreement with retroactive effect, if applicable.
To simplify, the following elements will fall under the user company remuneration from 3 January 2022:
The changes will take effect from 3 January 2022. This means that temporary workers are entitled to the same allowances from the above points if permanent employees with the same position will be given this.

TOSS is happy with the new developments
The new collective agreement fits in well with our vision of the labor market: meaningful work for all that begins with putting the temporary workers first. We believe that these developments give a new perspective for temporary workers and a different view on the value of their contract. Temporary workers remain essential and certainly not only during uncertain economic times.
