Unions call for Ikea probe

A group of unions has called on the Dutch government to investigate Swedish home furnishings giant Ikea over allegations three of its stores in the US, Ireland and Portugal have infringed workers’ rights.

Unions call for Ikea probe

The unions allege Ikea management has “sophisticated strategies to keep workers from joining or establishing labour unions”, in breach of guidelines laid out by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
Ikea Group, which has its headquarters in Leiden, the Netherlands, said in a written response that it “complies strictly with all regulations relating to union organising activities everywhere we operate”.
Christy Hoffman, general secretary of the UNI Global Union, said Ikea management “repeatedly ignored the red flags that workers and unions have raised about violations of rights in its stores around the world”.
