(en) Netherlands, Utrecht: Flyer action workgroup Arbeid FNV and OTTO Workforce office Utrecht By Free Bond Secretariat (nl) [machine translation]

[Beilen] Flyer promotion at Jumbo DC in Beilen ---- Yes, there we are again!! ---- Last
Friday, July 5, during the Dolle Dwaze Domela Dagen , the Free Bond - Workgroup Labor
Group organized another flyer campaign at the Jumbo distribution center (DC) in Beilen.
This is to provide information during the shift change to labor migrants working at this
distribution center. Likewise, sympathizers were present at this promotion. ---- When we
arrived at the location, we immediately rolled out our banner and distributed it in a time
frame of approximately one hour at the gate of the Jumbo DC employment law flyers in Dutch
, English and Polish . Many workers stopped to accept our flyers. Most of them responded
positively and gladly accepted the flyers, also to give them to their (Polish) colleagues.
This time not even a Jumbo employee appeared to ask what we were doing. It almost seems
that it is becoming a habit to fly at the gate. When the flyers were almost finished,
everyone was collected and we moved away. Everyone was full of energy, ready for the next
Why this promotion?
The flyer campaign is intended to alert labor migrants to their rights, to ensure that
they are not used against other employees and to alert them to self-organization. This was
done by distributing employment law flyers in which the basis of employment law for flex
workers is briefly and briefly explained in various languages such as Polish, English,
Dutch and Spanish.
The vast majority of employees working in the Jumbo Distribution Centers are labor
migrants, mainly of Polish descent. These labor migrants are in a difficult situation in
which they are exploited. This by having to meet far too high standards, by being put on
the waiting list in case of complaints and as a result not being given work but having to
pay for expenses, are entirely dependent on the accommodation offered which, incidentally,
is in dubious condition and has to be roughly paid for. It has also been shown earlier
that labor migrants have been used as strike breakers at a Jumbo Distribution Center,
which is of course completely illegal! Migrant workers usually do not know what their
rights are, which makes them vulnerable to such types of exploitation. The flyer campaign
is therefore intended to alert labor migrants to their rights,
This promotion is the initiative of the Free Association and more promotions will follow,
such as the following flyer promotions:
Friday, July 19 FNV and OTTO Workforce office Utrecht (possibly also to Jumbo DC Woerden,
if this proves possible).
Friday, August 2 OTTO Workforce office The Hague, during the No Border Camp.
Friday, August 23 Jumbo DC Beilen, during the Free Bond Congress.
A workshop will also be set up during the No Border Camp (August 1-4).
Of course you are invited to participate in these promotions and / or workshops. Later
specific announcements follow.
