Netherlands -Transport workers ask for dialogue on expansion of port -September 24, 2014

After the decision of a court that gave the green light for a second port the transport trade unions have made clear that there is a clear need for discussion around a phased implementation of Maasvlakte 2 with the trade unions.

After the decision of a court that gave the green light for a second port the transport trade unions have made clear that there is a clear need for discussion around a phased implementation of Maasvlakte 2 with the trade unions. This must include a dialogue involving all stakeholders, including the representative trade union, FNV Havens, and it must cover areas such as job creation, job stability and sustainability. Without that process, the future of one of the world’s busiest and most successful ports – and one with a record of good labour relations – will be put at risk.
