Groningen officials to work on May 1 and August 28
City of Groningen officials will have to work on May 1 and on August 28, starting next year. Labor Day used to be a day off for them, as was Bommen Berend. This is one of the new terms of employment for officials, negotiated by the City and unions in recent weeks.In order to attract more young people, older employees are to work less. The negotiations have not been easy, admit both the City and the unions. Some statements made by Alderman Schroor did not sit well with the officials.
