Majority of Defense Staff do not Trust Minister of Defense

Two thirds of the Dutch Defense Personnel have no Confidence in the top military Leadership. This results from a survey by the military unions. 84% say that Minister of Defense Jeanine Hennis Plasschaert does not increase their confidence in the organization. Major problems include material shortages, insufficient staff care and inadequate employment conditions.  There are also problems with the shortage of ammunition. The survey shows broadly similar results with those of 2013 and 2014. A spokesperson of one of the unions called it a vote of no confidence in the top of the Ministry and gives the minister especially a red card.
