Netherlands: Union organizers, MP arrested; denied access to care-home workers
ABVAKABO FNV is running an organising campaign to improve conditions for care-workers. More and more employers are reluctant to grant the union access to workers. Pleyade, a care employer in Arnhem, is fighting a fierce anti-union campaign (anti-union propaganda in the company and on the internet) and as part of this campaign refuses access to union officials. Organisers are systematically removed from the premises and -in the most recent case- arrested on charges of trespassing.
