Netherlands: Border blockade

On 10 January, the Transport Committee of the European Parliament has a crucial vote about the EU Mobility Package. These deliberations will have a major impact on bus and truck drivers’ work and rest schedule, on their wages and on the safety of all road users in Europe. Trade unions across Europe take actions this week to guarantee safety and fair working conditions for millions of EU citizens.

FNV, an ETF affiliate union in the Netherlands, took action against dangerous proposals to reform the EU road transport sector. Workers and activists gathered at the Hazeldonk border crossing on the A16 and handed leaflets to passing drivers.
