Amsterdam: Racism, Discrimination and Many Other Problems Among Firefighters

The Amsterdam mayor, Eberhard van der Laan and the secretary of the municipality, Arjan van Gils, have sent a letter to the municipal council   in which they claim that there are huge problems in the firefighters unit.  The workers representatives and their allies do not wish to fight against the racism, discrimination, and bullying in the unit. The new head of the unit dismissed an employee who done this.  The employee did not deny that he had committed racism, discrimination and bullying.  However, the judge decided that since the previous head of the unit had done nothing about it, the new head cannot dismiss him.  The decision of the judge was considered a victory in the unit.
