After two weeks of negotiations and two-hour strikes that caused chaos at the country's airports the trade unions representing the air traffic controllers and the management of the air traffic control service Belgocontrol have reached an agreement on (amongst other things) conditions for retirement. The agreement offers an opportunity to remain in a non-operational job with Belgocontrol beyond 60; this will allow controllers to build up full pension rights. Those that wish to stay at home from the age of 55, while remaining available to work for Belgocontrol will still receive 75% to 85% of their salary.
