Dictionary of Dutchness


Set up in 1974, the MHP (Middengroepen en Hoger Personeel) is the third biggest trade union federation in the Netherlands and represents 160,000 professional and managerial staff. As such, the white-collar union tends to be less strident in its political stance than the FNV and CNV which are the traditional combatants in the battle between bosses and workers.
