For security reasons workers at the AkzoNobel plant MEB have postponed a planned strike. The reason for the delay is that workers want to guarantee a safe phasing out of chlorine production, including for customers. The demand of the workers in this industrial action is a 10% pay rise, motivated by the stagnation of wage improvements in recent years. Another aim is to tackle the inequality of wages between workers and executives. The management tried to block the strike by an appeal to the court. However, the court rejected in the summary proceedings this demand.
