AMSTERDAM — Police have warned they will stage mass protests and industrial action in coming weeks against worsening workplace conditions.
 
Police unions said they will continue the actions until Interior Minister Johan Remkes meets their demands.

They said tough actions were necessary given the serious implications of the minister's policies, 'Radio Netherlands' reported on Friday.

But Remkes said he has given sufficient leeway for unions to come up with a new CAO labour agreement.
 
Nevertheless, a police protest will be held on 8 June in Goes during a meeting of the Dutch association of municipalities (VNG).

On 12 June, police will start a 'blue siege' of the Interior Ministry in The Hague, staging an ongoing 24-hour per day demonstration.
