Miss Etam staff is still going to court to stop the demolition of the retail chain

Miss Etam’s works council is going to court to prevent owner Martijn Rozenboom from closing more and more shops.

“Rozenboom does not keep to the agreements at all. He had to ask the works council for advice before closing a store or taking the webshop off the air, but Rozenboom did not do that. The breakdown of the retail chain must stop. We ask the judge to intervene, ”said Martin Pikaart, on behalf of the AVV trade union and the works council.

On Thursday, October 22, the case will be dealt with urgently before the Enterprise Chamber of the Amsterdam Court of Appeal. “We expect that the court will then immediately take measures and oblige Rozenboom to comply with the law and to regard the works council as the official discussion partner.”

Restart

At the end of September, “company doctor” Rozenboom bought the bankrupt FNG Netherlands, which included Miss Etam, to make a restart. He would have the business plans, which had already been in place before the bankruptcy and which were to guarantee the continuity and growth of the company, under the leadership of a four-man board.

Since the purchase, however, many stores have been closed, the webshop has been taken down, two chains (Expresso and Claudia Sträter) have been resold, part of the management is no longer approachable and the employees had to start an action to receive their salary. . There is nothing to indicate that the new owner is executing the original plans and wants to continue Miss Etam. Pikaart: “We ask the judge to put an end to this and to be able to participate in decisions about the future of the company.”

In addition, AVV and Miss Etam’s works council jointly go to the examining magistrate to get the documents about the sale on the table. Those documents are now secret and are with the curator. These documents must show whether the plans of the company doctor were serious.
