Netherlands - Refuse collectors take strike action - October 23, 2009

Workers in the waste collection service in the city of Leyden took strike action on 21 October in protest at municipal plans to privatise this service. The workers are hoping that privatisation will be postponed and that the union will be able to negotiate changes and improvements to the service. Further strikes may follow if the municipality goes ahead with privatisation.
