Amsterdam should not do business with bad employers, such as cleaning companies that fail to pay their workers a living wage. A proposal to that effect was presented today by SP, PvdA and Groenlinks.
FNV Lokaal Amsterdam, the local branch of the largest trade union federation, supports the proposal. "In sectors such as cleaning and post delivery, the position of workers is often miserable. Money raised by citizens should not end up in the hands of employers who treat their employees badly", spokesman Roel Jansen says.
