Trade Union of Military: No Confidence in Minister of Defense

Jean Debie, Chairman of the military trade union, VBM, says that the military has no confidence in the Minister of Defense, Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert. According to Debie, salaries have decreased by 4.7%. There are also many complaints about the shortage of spare parts and manpower to participate in international actions. All this was confirmed in a poll executed this summer among 3,200 military, civil employees, and pensioners. About 80% of those polled consider that the Ministry does not act in the interest of the personnel.
