Rotterdam, The Hague public transport strikes can go ahead: court

Public transport strikes in The Hague and Rotterdam on Tuesday and Wednesday can go ahead as planned, a judge in Rotterdam said on Monday evening.

The two metropolitan authorities had tried to take out an injunction to have the strikes stopped, saying they would affect too many commuters and damage the local and national government. In addition, the councils say, the strikes are premature.
Bus, tram and metro workers are striking in protest at government plans to force through €120m in spending cuts on public transport. Amsterdam workers went on strike on Monday.
