June 7 Amsterdam Transport strike - 24hrs

Public transport workers in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague will go on 24-hour strikes in June in protest at government plans to make the city councils put services out to tender.

Amsterdam will kick of with a 24 hour strike on June 7, followed by The Hague on June 8 and Rotterdam on June 9.

Public transport workers in the three cities have previously gone on shorter strikes as part of their protests.

I doubt if this will include trains to and from schipol. Just as well Amsterdam is such an easy to "walk around" city!

This is good to know. That will be my last day in Amsterdam, so we will plan accordingly.

The trains are run by NS so they should not be affected.

Indeed, trains will not be affected by the strike. In Amsterdam GvB busses/trams/metros will be out of service (but probably not Connexxion), in Rotterdam RET and in The Hague HTM.
