The bill will be introduced by Steven van Weijenberg, a member of the pro-European D-66 party, and Senna Maatug, an MP from the Green Party, Weijenberg told Bloomberg on Wednesday. holidays July 3rd.

“We have the green light for this new law thanks to the support we have received from both the workers' unions and the employers' unions,” — Weijenberg said.
