Netherlands -Philip Morris workers on strike -January 17, 2013

Workers at the Bergen op Zoom plant of US cigarette manufacturer Philip Morris are on strike. The workers want to force the company's board to agree on requirements for a new collective agreement. The management finds the demands of the trade unions unacceptable. After work interruptions in the first week and working half shifts the week after, the action committee decided to further increase the pressure on the management.
