Netherlands -Protesters win new collective agreement to replace annulled agreement -September 9, 2012

Workers at an Amsterdam nursing home, Osira Amstelring, went on strike after their employer closed a company level collective agreement excluding the main trade unions in the sector. After a parliamentary vote annulling the selective collective agreement, the workers negotiated a new collective agreement. The agreement includes sections on workload, the right to an 8-hour working day and union rights.
