FNV Formaat's EWC Service wishes all its readers a healthy, active and successful 2012. It looks like this year, too, protecting employee interests will require quite some dedication and effort. Then again, has it ever been smooth sailing? Fortunately, experience shows that results can always be obtained as long as we keep supporting one another and communicate well. In 2012, as always, you can take FNV Formaat's EWC Service up on that!
