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

CEO Decuyper interview Het Nieuwsblad (Google translate) Despite an agreement, the air traffic controller Skeyes continues to fiddle. Friday and Saturday night, air traffic was already hampered, and from Monday the Christian union promises more actions. For weeks, managing director Johan Decuyper ab...

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

Sad indeed... Controllers have been fighting with each new management (and there has been quite a few since the creation of Belgocontrol). Some have kept the mentalities (and the privileges) of the old RLW/RVA which was run by the State. Skeyes (ex-Belgocontrol) is probably the last such company th...

Re: Belgian FIR quasi-closed during night 01-02/03

Those guys are abusing the system. Everyone knows that it was an organized manoeuvre: they all called sick on the same day! And guess what? They are untouchable! If the company sends them a doctor at home to check if they are really sick, they simply have to tell him that if he/she puts them back t...

Re: Belgian FIR quasi-closed during night 01-02/03

Speaking of lies, who started that game? The ATCOs pretending to be sick in order not to lose one cent of their pay, when everybody knows they are perfectly healthy, or the people just reporting that fact? The unions promising not to strike before 11 March and finding another way to hurt our econom...

Are all the sick ATCOs healthy again? That was a quick one!

Does the air traffic control guild still exist? And how is their relationship with the skeyes management and with the trade unions?
