Re: Social actions at air traffic control service skeyes (Belgium) - possible air traffic disruptions

A meeting for CANAC atco's had been planned for 10h today. The initial email called of the COO for everyone to be there so they could explain the 'agreement'. However, 10h is a busy time to work, so a lot of people wouldn't be able to attend anyway. And even for those in break, attending isn't obvio...

We do have a certain strategy regarding the demands we have, so I'm not going to go in detail about it, but things would go a long way if management would just follow the law and the company internal rules.

Re: Air traffic control service skeyes to strike in the evenings and nights of 12 & 13 March

Flemish Tower atco here. I feel there is a lot of negativity here, and I'm bracing myself; but I'm willing to take a shot at defending our viewpoint. There really is a lack of staffing at Belgocontrol and the reason for this is mismanagement. The current situation arose when 10 years ago or so, the ...
