  • Today, the FNV trade union is coming up with the wage requirement for next year. Last week, the CNV union also came up with a wage demand. That union is committed to a 4 to 10 percent wage increase, employee shares and a shorter working week. At FNV, the requirement was 14.3 percent last year.
  • The faction leaders of the Provincial Council of Gelderland are meeting for an extra meeting. This is due to reports in De Gelderlander about a culture of fear in the province’s workplace. King’s Commissioner Berends is also present. He and close associates are accused of inappropriate behavior in the workplace.
  • The International Court of Justice in The Hague is continuing with the case that Ukraine brought against Russia, shortly after the invasion a year and a half ago. Today, Russian objections to the case will be discussed. It is unclear whether Russia itself is present.

What did you miss?

The United Nations is concerned about two dams in the North African country, a week after devastating floods in Libya. There is a lot of pressure on the Qattara dam near Benghazi and the Jaza dam between Derna and Benghazi, says the UN emergency aid agency OCHA.

Reports on the situation are conflicting, as authorities in the area say both dams are in good condition and functioning normally. Pumps have been installed at the Jaza dam to reduce the pressure of the water on the dam.

Other news from the night:
