Netherlands - Dockworkers vote massive yes to strike action - December 31, 2015

Dockworkers' union FNV Havens said its members in the container sector had voted ‘massively yes’ to take strike action in the New Year at the Port of Rotterdam. The union stated that its members ‘almost unanimously’ rejected a final offer from the employers. The workers are said to be hoping that the strike action will help achieve their demand for a guarantee of job security over the next nine years in the face of two new highly automated container terminals.
