Social discontent is back at Belgian air navigation service provider skeyes. According to the unions, management did not respect the terms of agreements during the Covid-19 crisis with regard to, for example, manning, working from home or schedules. Management is also accused of modifying the terms of labour agreements without consultations.
The three trade unions (SLFP/VSOA, ACV/CSC Transcom and ACOD/CGSP) threaten to file a strike notice if management persists. However, they hope it will not be necessary to go that far: a meeting is scheduled for this Friday with the CEO Johan Decuyper.
And if a strike notice were to be filed, a conciliation procedure would automatically follow. Passengers and freight forwarders should, therefore, not yet fear disruption of air traffic.
