Netherlands - Supermarket negotiations still lingering on - March 29, 2011

After the third bargaining round, negotiations on a new supermarket collective agreement for the supermarkets (240,000 employed) are still lingering on. According to unionists, the employer delegation refused to discuss age discrimination and the future of the youth subminimum wage and also refused to talk about non-compliance with the current agreement, two issues that remain crucial for the unions.
