A strike notice will expire on Wednesday within the Lidl store chain, which could lead to the closure of several stores. The socialist union expects actions in the province of Limburg but other provinces of the country could also follow suit.
The unions have been complaining for several months about the workload within the distributor. A strike in the stores had been avoided in extremis in June while a strike had affected the deposits in April.
Recently, a conciliation meeting between management and unions failed to produce any results.
The reinforcement of manpower granted by the management, at the rate of 42 hours per week and per store, may not be extended beyond February 2022. In addition, the “flying team“Who comes to lend a hand to stores facing many absences is not enough, according to the socialist union.
