Netherlands - Transport unions activate compliance control - January 01, 2017

The inspectorate for environment and transport, the labour inspectorate, the police and the custom services held a joint control and enforcement campaign in the international transport sector. One company that drove without a license and with no administration of the drivers’ driving and rest periods was sanctioned with a shutdown. In another company, it was found that Polish and Lithuanian truck drivers were lodged without any sanitarian provisions. In a third company investigations, notably with respect to the pay and working conditions, are going on. Overall, 47 companies were investigated in 2016; in 60% of the cases the inspectorate discovered artificial arrangements and other breaches. The transport trade union FNV, in close cooperation with the Belgium colleagues, is very active in detecting and reporting fraud, non-payment of collectively agreed wages and other breaches of working conditions.
