Belgium -Rail workers strike -July 02, 2014

Railway workers trade union ACOD/CGSP has called for a 24 hour strike because the network is so understaffed that workers are unable to take days off.

Railway workers trade union ACOD/CGSP has called for a 24 hour strike because the network is so understaffed that workers are unable to take days off. The union calculated that between 1 January 2011 and this spring 4,000 jobs have gone lost (over a total of 38,000), with negative consequences for the health and safety of the workforce and for the safety of the railway system. Talks with the management have not led to acceptable solutions yet. The trade union call the proposals tabled from the management side ‘cosmetic’. The ACV-CSC railway union endorses the analysis, but is of the opinion that there is still space for further talks.
