Dutch term or phrase: maatschappelijke zorgvuldigheid
Context is comments on Article 6 of European Social Charter (right to bargain collectively), specifically paragraph 4 (right to collective action).

Op grond van artikel 6 lid 4 ESH en de uitleg daarvan door de Nederlandse rechter geldt het volgende:
- de uitoefening [van het recht op collectieve actie] behoort in overeenstemming te zijn met de maatschappelijke zorgvuldigheid. Over het algemeen wordt aangenomen dat collectieve actie is toegestaan wanneer onderhandelingen geen resultaat meer opleveren.

Explanation:
De uitoefening [van het recht op collectieve actie] behoort in overeenstemming te zijn met de maatschappelijke zorgvuldigheid.

The right to bargain collectively should be exercised in a socially repsonsible way.

-> \"Warm fuzzy notions of a company that looks after its workers do not cut it as a measure of whether a company is socially responsible in its employment practices. That stuff is icing on the cake IF a company already observes the core international labour standards.\"

Yep, that'll do me as well - except it's the right to collective action. Don't know how socially responsible the collective bargaining process is these days ;-) Thanks a lot!
