Belgium - National demonstration keeps pressure on non-profit employers - June 22, 2011

Over 16,000 workers joined the national demonstration on 9 June calling for new, long-term agreements in the non-profit sector, covering a range of health and social services. The unions are looking to negotiate deals at national, regional and community level and emphasise the need to improve employment conditions in order to make it a more attractive sector in which to work and so increase recruitment. Two ministers receiving a union delegation, Joëlle Milquet en Laurette Onkelinx, said to agree with a long-term agreement but pointed at the country’s current political insecurity.
