Dutch term or phrase: AbvaKabo
Another union acronym to be transalted for a chapter in an anthology of recent European socail history. Cannot even find out what this stands for on the internet or elsewhere, although from its composite parts I beleieve it was a merger of the Algemene Bond van Ambtenaren and the Katholieke Arbeidersbeweging. Once again looking for possible existing translations or standard translations before settling on my own gloss terminology.
