Noord-Holland bus strike this Saturday June 11th

The strikes in regional public transport are hitting Noord-Holland this weekend. On Saturday June 11th, 2022, more scheduled bus services will not run to and from Schiphol. Travelers in Haarlem, Amstelveen, Purmerend, and Zaandam, should also take potential bus stoppages into account.

The strike is part of the relay strike organized by the trade union FNV. The union wants to reinforce its call for better working conditions with the campaign.

The strike is highly inconvenient for Schiphol. In addition to affecting travelers, the strike will also make it more difficult for potential employees to get to the job market the airport is holding on Saturday. Many companies at the airport are trying to recruit people to work at Schiphol. FNV has said it approves this initiative.

It is not yet clear which and how many rides will be cancelled. According to EBS, travelers should keep in mind that their bus is most likely not running. Night buses also do not run in the night of 11 to 12 June. The local buses do run according to the normal timetable. Carrier Connexxion recommends that you plan your journey as soon as possible before departure, so that you are not faced with any surprises. Transport companies Connexxion and EBS warned travelers to take note of the strike. “We advise you to opt for a different form of transport on Saturday,” EBS said on Twitter.

Trade union CNV is not participating in the regional public transport strike. CNV members have accepted the employers’ final offer with a two-thirds majority. It is, therefore, possible that some buses will run.

A total of 13,000 people work in regional public transport.
