Iceland -Worries about migrants’ exploitation -September 25, 2015

The trade union Framsýn has expressed grave concern that foreign worker exploitation has become widespread in north Iceland. The National broadcasting Service RÚV has reported that most of these cases of illegal treatment of workers concern the food service, construction and tourist industries, and pertains to at least dozens of foreign workers. After consultation of other unions Framsýn has contacted those companies accused of worker exploitation to give them a chance to improve conditions.
