In August 2004, the US NCP received a request for a review from a trade union alleging that a US subsidiary of a Dutch multinational enterprise was breaching the general policies, employment and industrial relations, and consumer interests provisions of the Guidelines.
The US NCP was unable to accept the specific instance for further consideation due to a lack of investment nexus. The parties later reached agreement under US labour law.
