Truck manufacturer DAF has violated safety rules during the previous 24-hour strike by the staff. This was per the trade union FNV which was communicated in a pamphlet this morning to employees.
At the end of May for the first time, work was suspended for twenty-four hours for a better collective agreement. DAF hired extra staff to reduce the effects of the strike. Thereby violating safety norms, because people were not authorised to be put on trucks, for which they don’t have certificates says the FNV.
The union also says that in the upcoming strike, action will be taken by the company: employees would be required to work overtime on Saturday to make up for the damage. FNV points out to the staff in the pamphlet on the fact that overtime can not be made mandatory.
Tomorrow work will once again be stopped for 24 hours as part of a strike for improved collective agreement.
