Dutch cooperative bank Rabobank announced it will probably cut 2,000 extra jobs on top of the 6,000 announced earlier (see Rabobank 2013 and Rabobank 2012).
As a result, the total number of jobs will decrease from 28,000 now to 20,000 by 2016.
Some 300 out of 800 branches will be closed.
Rabobank will invest heavily in mobile banking and sees less furure for branch offices. Furthermore, after intensive negotiations, Rabobank entered into a new subdued collective labour agreement, which will remain in effect until 1 January 2016.
