Belgium -Respect for agreements in case two power plants close -May 24, 2012

The Electrabel plan to close two plants (in Ruien and Les Awirs) with in total 130 workers involved is subject of actual consultations. The trade unions have the impression that the company is creating a situation of artificial scarcity. They have created a joint front and claim that the collective agreements have to be respected in a company that is flourishing; there is no reason for dismissals. The next round of talks is planned for 1 June.
