Trade Union Chairman: Employers Exploit Personnel

The chairman of the FNV trade union, Ton Heerts, says that employers exploit employees on a major scale.  He claims that billions are stolen in this way.  He mentioned in particular large companies such as Albert Heijn, Shell, and AkzoNovo. Heerts said that the main problem is that collective labor agreements are not respected.  He saw huge problems with subcontractors who were paid less than what they were entitled to. The employers’ organizations, VNO-NCW and MKB Nederland, consider that Heerts is exaggerating.
