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

So, the Germans take over the work of the sick Belgian ATCO’s? No it’s only a corridor that links Liege TMA with Germany, in other words Liege Approach will ne connected to Germany bypassing Brussels ACC.

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

Please, give me one government or private company where some of the staff oppose always the decisions of his management and/or his CEO? Times change, every change requires an adjustment. Why does that not apply to the ATCO's? The problems at Belgocontrol/skeyes have been dragging on for many years....

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

I see that the whole Belgian press is reporting about the closure of Belgian airspace at night, almost a daily feature in newspapers. It might be simpler to announce when airspace remains open the whole night! Some explanation from ACV/CSC representative : https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbi...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2019

As far as I know it was a so-called sponsorship of De Persgroep. Brussels Airlines itself paid nothing for the newspapers on board and in the lounges.

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

Are there any new discussions planned? What's the way forward at the moment? This morning, management has asked the Ministry of Labour to name a social conciliator (or mediator, or whatever you name this person). But at the same time, it asks for the cessation of all actions. ACV asked for a concil...
