Belgium -Unions leave board advisory committee Flanders temp staffing industry -June 22, 2012

Trade unions ACV, ABVV and ACLVB have left the advisory committee of the Flanders temporary staffing industry, arguing their input is not treated with the weight it deserves. Reports of discrimination, unsafe work places and indecent working conditions have put the unions on edge. The employers’ organisation, Federgon, has expressed its wish for reconciliation. It stressed that the unions are a vital part of the committee and of the industry as a whole.
