No Alcohol Sales to Minors: Trade Union Afraid of Violence

Since the beginning of this year, no alcohol can be sold to youths under the age of 18. On the basis of research, the trade union CNV Dienstenbond said that 55% of supermarket personnel expects increased aggression as a result of this law. Verbal and physical violence are the result of requests from cashiers for identification from clients. According to the research, 16% of supermarket employees face problems at least once a week with the sale of alcohol. The trade union has opened a monitoring service to get a better handle on this situation.
