Dutch Trade Union Movement Database

This project aims to build a database in which information on all ever existing Dutch trade union organizations is brought together. At first basic data referring to foundation, merging, liquidation and memberships is gathered. The second stage of the project deals with information on the archival records of the organizations. In the third stage this data will be combined and published on the worldwide web. The project is financed by the Federation of Dutch Trade Unions (FNV).
