Strike at Belgian Rail this Saturday, 27 July. Services to Brussels Airport may be disturbed.
Oh, come on! What a stupid thing to do as there is no government. What do they hope to achieve? Annoy people is the only valid answer imho.
Tell that to people who can’t get 7 consecutive days off in a year because of understaffing
I can underxtand their frustration and even anger, but, again, they have no-one to take decisions for the time being..

They are not employed by government. Even if the Railways management are bound hand and foot to the state subsidies, still they have their responsabilities; and they are very good at blaming others for their unsolved issues.

There we go again. The leftist trade union says that negociations for a new Collective Agreement at the national Safety/Security branch are not going the way they want it to go. To put pressure on employers, they organize a protest meeting at Navo Evere on Tuesday. "We expect a lot of people working at Brussels Airport", HLN.be reports. The airport confirms that there will be -most probably- longer waiting times then normal.

Brace for impact.
Negocations for a new national agreement have failed, so the trade unions now prepare "spontane acties" - sudden disruption. They already told that they will focus on Brussels Airport. For an obvious reason: any disruption there results in immediate national press coverage. And with social elections forthcoming, press coverage is part of the power play campaign between the union themselves.

The press reports that an agreement between trade Union delegates and management has been reached. Trade union members still have to approve the agreement.

The buses of STIB/MIVB keep operating, as well as the trains of SNCB/NMBS

The general strike in France today has affected 8 flights to/from Belgium: SN cancelled return flights to LYS and TLS, and FR cancelled return flights to ALC and BCN (not exactly in France, by flying over French airspace).
