Belgium -Public sector unions organise strike -June 24, 2013

Socialist and liberal trades unions have organised a day of action against public sector cuts. The workers are protesting against intended changes in civil servant contracts, from tenure contracts to regular contracts. The civil servants fear the change of contract status will bring a large number of layoffs and will make public sector employees more vulnerable to changes in the political colour of the municipal, regional and national governments. The action disrupted services in municipalities and regions throughout the country, including a number of prisons.
