Re: 2019 Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL/EBCI) latest news

First one is not a strike in CRL, but the national strike... probably including Skeyes and more outside the airport. Second, not a CRL personnel strike, but strike from external partners as in BRU A "national strike" is no legal obligation. A strike allways is a voluntary sabotage action by employe...

Re: 2019 Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL/EBCI) latest news

Di Santo will be able to avoid strikes at CRL... Three aren't any strikes at CRL. Even when the whole country is on strike, CRL is running. And that is a culture of the enterprise that was instilled by former CEO Jean-Jacques Cloquet who was loved by his staff. 13th February 2019: full strike: http...

Re: South African Airways: ongoing rumours about financial woes

Last Tuesday, the problems at South African Airways (and at SA's electricity company Eskom) were discussed in the parliament. And with just one political party in the majority, the only that is relevant, is what their politicians said. And they all support a new bailout by the government. From news2...

Still, a pity and an example of how our country is run... and no it's not better in the North... People get these posts because the colour of their party card and what they did for that party and not because of their knowledge, if any...
