Belgium -Joint trade union action at Otis -October 18, 2012

A unified trade union front has initiated actions at the Otis plant in Groot-Bijgaarden. The aim is to reduce work pressure and to force the management to the negotiation table. The management has relocated people in recent months without any consultation. Key issue in the dispute is the plan to reduce the introduction period of new technicians during which mentorship is guaranteed from 6 months to 4 weeks.
