More regions covered by ambulance workers' action

Netherlands Netherlands

The industrial action by ambulance staff has been extended to more regions as members of the FNV continue their campaign to secure improvements in the collective agreement to deal with overwork, understaffing and to increase pay. The action began across seven regions on 24 September and consists of a work-to-rule with ambulance workers refusing overtime and sticking rigidly to their breaks and normal working time. Workers in a further four regions have now joined the action which the union plans to extend, with the possibility also of work stoppages, unless the employers agree to negotiate.
