Netherlands -Freight handlers on strike -March 21, 2013

Some 200 freight handlers at Schiphol airport went on strike   over deteriorating working conditions. Workers at Aviapartner Cargo (APC) are facing longer hours and have little control over their schedule. Workers say they can end up having just one day’s rest per week, between a day and a night shift. Workers have also called for improved conditions for their temporary colleagues, and a 3% pay rise.
