Workers at the potato processing company Lutosa have gone on strike after cameras were discovered in the changing rooms.

Work stopped at the on Wednesday morning at 4:00 AM, and is yet to restart, as unions discuss the matter with the company, reports various media.

The strike came about after an employee of the company accidentally discovered a camera in a dressing room on 31 July.

While Lutosa says the intention was to deal with a string of thefts at the company, workers say no mention was made of the cameras being installed.

The strikers denounce a breach of trust with the employer, who has meanwhile apologised, and told Het Nieuwsblad that it has erased all images.
