Dutch cleaners' strike continues

Over 2,500 cleaners marched through The Hague in the Netherlands earlier this month, calling for respect and pledging to continue their strike action.

The cleaners say their employers have still not responded to them on the issues they have raised, such as sick pay, enough time to do the job properly and more respect and appreciation.

After the recent March of Respect in Amsterdam the cleaners suspended their actions for a few days in order to give their employers time to react. Now they are ready to strike again.

They are seeking proper sick pay, more job security for temporary workers, enough time to complete the job correctly and reasonable travel allowances. Proposals they say have been rejected by employers.
