Letter to Minister Hoekstra on negative effects of de-risking

In a letter to Finance Minister Hoekstra, a large number of social umbrella organizations are sounding the alarm.

WO=MEN co-signed the letter.  

In the letter the umbrella organizations call upon the minister to organize consultations between the parties involved as soon as possible in order to find a solution.
