Luxembourg -Conflict looms in construction sector -February 07, 2013

In a joint press conference, trade unions LCGB and OGBL have made known they fear stalled talks in the construction sector may escalate into a full blown strike. The core point of contention concerns employer demands of longer working hours, that unions say are inhumane in a heavy line of work like construction. The first round of collective agreement negotiations is due to take place this month, but unions have already warned that they are prepared to resort to industrial action if no agreement is found.
