Five staffing firms in the Netherlands have reportedly failed to comply with collective agreements in the country which regulate working conditions and pay for workers, the FNV union announced. The recruiters have been identified as Tecline Gmbh, Intecs, Friday Eurotech, Utges and NN Uitzendbureau.
The staffing firms supply construction workers around the seaport town of Eemshaven in Northern Holland. The union said it closely monitors the compliance of staffing companies with collective agreements in the city, calling in authorities when its suspects potential offenses.
The SNCU, an organisation responsible for promoting and monitoring compliance with collective agreements in the staffing sector, has confirmed that the five recruitment agencies did not play by the rules.
FNV said more could be done to prevent situations like this and improve the Dutch labour market. It said that measures were needed to quickly tackle the issue. The union demands that clients should be held liable in cases where firms do not abide by the rules set out in collective agreements.
