You're talking about "strike". But when I read the message from the Eurocontrol Network Manager, I read "staff shortage"
Do you have any extra information allowing you to confirm this is a strike ? If you do thank you for sharing because as far as I know, there is no more valid strike notice at skeyes.
No he does not.
2 acc controllers called sick, because they were sick.
Nobody wanted to replace them, because nothing has changed compared to 5 months ago. Management attempted to commandeer air traffic controllers, they passed since our management has no legal grounds to do so.
Management decided to close the West sector in favor of the East sector.
And just for your information.
Skeyes lawyers have officially declared in court, that there were no irregularities found with ANY air traffic controllers calling in sick since the start of this whole situation.
From a Belga press release regarding this courtcase:
Volgens skeyes hebben controleartsen trouwens vastgesteld dat alle luchtverkeersleiders die zich als ziek opgaven, ook echt ziek waren. "Het ging dus om overmacht", aldus nog de advocaten van het bedrijf."
From the twitter of Frederik Ureel, Belga aviation journalist following this case directly in court:
Nog opvallend in pleidooi skeyes, tekorten waren niet het gevolg van doelbewuste acties want controleartsen hebben vastgesteld dat alle luchtverkeersleiders die zich ziek meldden, ook echt ziek waren, klonk het. (Anderen weigerden wel vrijwillig in te springen)
That's odd, didnt read about that anywhere in the national press?
And to react to mvgs point 3, 4 and 5.
Point 3 and 4 are actually about our goodwill, which we don't have anymore.
Negotiations are going horrible and are still a monologue where everything we say is being ignored.
We're being lied to and about multiple times on weekly basis.
We're not violating any rules.
Point 5 requires official contingency procedures, this is not about our goodwill at all. The procedures are simply not there.
There is still the same massive shortage in canac.
