Belgium -48 hours strike against work pressure ended -September 02, 2013

Workers at the chemicals company Tessenderlo Chemie in the town of Ham stopped working for 48 hours in protest against a planned production expansion and the work pressure that causes serious health and safety risks. According to the trade unions, the planned production increase would lead to higher work pressure which could put at risk employee safety. The unions stated that they are against the hiring of an external consultant in the coming restructuring process. The strike ended with better guarantees for workers’ health.
