Unions ask for Ikea probe

A group of unions has called on the Dutch government to investigate Swedish home furnishings giant Ikea over allegations that some of its stores, including in Portugal, have infringed workers' rights.

The unions allege Ikea management has "sophisticated strategies to keep workers from joining or establishing labour unions", in breach of guidelines laid out by the OECD.

Ikea Group, which has its headquarters in the Netherlands, said in a written response that it complies strictly with all regulations relating to union organising activities everywhere they operate.
