Netherlands -Strike at petrochemical site -January 29, 2013

After the negotiations failed for a new collective agreement workers at the SABIC petrochemical plant in Geleen decided to go for a strike. SABIC has around 1,850 staff. Workers and management were at loggerheads over target pay increases and planned changes in work hours. The unions also oppose expected redundancies related to business reforms under SABIC's so-called ‘social plan’.
