It hasn't been mentioned so far but another 24 hours strike happened between March 2nd and 3rd at FedEx in LGG :

"No Fedex-TNT plane has taken off again from Liège airport since 10 p.m. on Tuesday and at least until Wednesday same time. The staff thus want to express their disagreement with the elimination of 671 jobs in their Liège hub."

The unions have announced a general strike in the private sector in Belgium on Monday, 29 March. This might affect public transport to/from Brussels Airport (and the other Belgian airports as well), but the unions also announced filter blocks at Brucargo on Monday, which could affect the distribution of vaccines.

Yesterday, customs officers at Brussels Airport have staged a work-to-rule action to complain about ... the lack of staff, in a period when only 5% of the flights are operated! Some passengers had to wait up to two hours after the arrival of their flights before they could leave the airport.
