New labor agreement for KLM cabin crew

The union (VNC) representing Dutch cabin crew at KLM agreed to accept a new collective labor agreement (CAO). Although the VNChad rejected the agreement twice before, the union now says that the new CAO is the best possible agreement at this time.

Quoting Dutch industry sources, an article about the new agreement on Forbes.com says:

The CAO includes a wage rise of 6.5 pct and the possibility for cabin staff to fly on four types of planes, while a study will also be conducted into the amount of stress cabin crew undergo while on the job, the website reported.

However, cabin crew are no longer allowed to fly while pregnant, after a KLM study indicated that doing so could have undesirable health effects.
KLM, AKA Royal Dutch Airlines, is now a subsidiary of the Air France-KLM group.
