Summary

During a check on the Kampstraat in Geleen - the Netherlands, inspection services found lorry drivers living in the car park without a toilet, shower or electricity. They sometimes lived in their cabins for eight weeks. These drivers also deliver for Ikea. The Dutch trade union FNV is advocating against these practices.
