Union organizers arrested - in the Netherlands


It's not every day we get asked to help out a trade union in the Netherlands.

That's because Dutch workers have created one of the most powerful and successful trade union movements in the world.

So when we do finally get an appeal for help, it shows just how bad things have gotten -- even in the Netherlands.

The country's largest public sector union is trying to organize care workers, like public sector unions in many countries faced with the challenge of privatization and casualization.

Recently union organizers and a member of parliament tried to visit care workers in the city of Arnhem.

The employer is called Pleyade and they have been waging a fierce anti-union campaign.

The company called the police, the organizers were arrested, and now we're being asked to help.

Please take a moment to sign up to this campaign and then spread the word in your union.

Thanks very much.
