MOSCOW, October 6 (RIA Novosti)
Dutch shipbuilder IHC Merwede is to fine workers who light up a cigarette outside official breaks €100 for each offence, Dutch media reported.
Repeat offenders may miss out on their profit share entitlements of some €2,400, the AD daily said.
The plan has been approved by the company’s works council. Merwede has a workforce of 3,000.
The measure has been brought in because the company wants a healthier workforce, especially now the state pension age is being increased to 66. The company also wants to stop smokers taking more breaks than non-smokers, the DutchNews portal reported.
