DutchNews, June 22, 2017
The European Court of
Justice on Thursday ruled in favour of four daycare workers sacked in a
pre-packed bankruptcy deal.
The case was brought by the FNV trade union
representing the four who lost their jobs when daycare group Estro went bust in
2014 and restarted immediately as Smallsteps. In total, 1,000 of the 3,800
members of staff lost their jobs.
A pre-pack deal allows companies to
restructure and prepare a restart as part of the bankruptcy process but has
been condemned for leaving staff and suppliers in the lurch. Unions say it is
often used by companies as a way to force through a reorganisation.
which had been asked to rule on the situation by a lower Dutch court, said that
workers involved in a pre-pack bankruptcy should keep the same rights as in a
normal takeover. In the pre-pack set-up they often end up with worse pay and
conditions and only a small financial settlement if made redundant.
court ruling means all Estro staff are officially employed by Smallsteps
because ‘European law takes precedence’ labour law professor Evert Verhulp told
news agency ANP.
‘However, to claim back pay, they should have made it clear
that they wanted to continue in their jobs. That does apply to the four who
went to court. The others will be able to apply for a golden handshake but it
is unclear if Smallsteps will be able to pay.’
Other companies which have used
the pre-pack bankruptcy construction include McGregor, prawn processor Heiploeg,
travel agency Neckermann, lingerie retailer Marlies Dekker and the Free Record
‘This ruling means that the pre-pack is no longer an attractive way to
reorganise and get rid of staff and secondary benefits cheaply,’ FNV deputy
chairman Kitty Jong said in a statement. ‘Up to today, workers had no rights if
a company went bust.’

“… The Shift in Human Nature
You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.
In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?
Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.
What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …”
