Belgium -Air traffic controllers coordinate actions -May 11, 2015

Possible strike actions in June against Federal Government's proposed savings to the air traffic control authority 'Belgocontrol'.

Air traffic controllers’ trade union ACV Transcom invited several other unions of neighbouring countries to a meeting in Brussels to discuss a possible strike in June against what it describes as ‘unrealistic savings’ that the Federal Government is asking the air traffic control authority Belgocontrol to make. The union is in favour of coordinated action with air traffic control unions from Germany, France, the Netherlands, Luxemburg and Switzerland. During the meeting it was decided to permanently monitor the austerity plans and to act jointly in the frame of the MARC/MOSAIC trade union coordination group.
