Netherlands -Sudden bankruptcy tour operator means giant loss of jobs -September 27, 2013

The bankruptcy of OAD (Overijsselse Autobusdiensten), a leading tour operator that owned over 140 travel shops, has caused a stir among the other EU and especially Dutch travel companies. Even though OAD had previously announced in March to start with a new on-line strategy this has been too little and too late. The legal curator for OAD has informed the trade unions that all 1750 OAD employees will be laid-off because the administrator cannot meet salaries payments for September.
