This morning (18 October), a work-to-rule action at Brussels Airport disturbed passenger flow through customs. Customs officers are continuing their actions for a second day. Passengers can expect a delay of up to one hour, according to union members.
“We are doing the same as Wednesday,” a union member explained, “we are checking every passenger, not just a few as usual.” Departing passengers are not affected by the social actions.
According to the union member, the work-to-rule action is set to continue until they receive a “positive signal” of Johan Van Overtveldt, Belgian Minister of Finance. The customs officers complain about the lack of staff.
