The right to a decent workplace – where do we come in?
It's nice and warm in the office – wonderful! A few days of Indian summer while fall is on our doorstep. When I hear some of my colleagues muttering that the weather is too hot to work comfortably, I quietly shake my head about how pampered we are. As employees of a Dutch bank we are rather privileged. All of our labour rights are well defended by legislation, employee participation and unions. With all of those safeguards, we really shouldn't be complaining.
