Belgium - General strike at Carrefour Belgium - February 26, 2010

For Saturday 27 February, the SETCA/BBTK, LBC-NVK, and CNE unions announced a general 24-hours' strike at Carrefour Belgium. They argued that with the selling or closure of 21 stores of the supermarket/hypermarket chain the sustainability of the entire Belgian part is at stake. They said that already for a decade they have been asking for a commercially ambitious plan, not once a cost-cutting plan at the expens! es of th e workers. Also, the unions demand the upcoming discussion on the collective agreement to take place in the framework of collective bargaining for the retail sector at large.
