Belgium - SNCB threatens to leave trade unions without finance - December 31, 2015

SNCB management are refusing to make a new financing agreement with the trade unions if the latter continues to threaten five-day strike action during January 2016. The current agreement runs until the end of 2015. The railway worker trade unions have benefitted from around 10 million euros per year under this agreement. If negotiations do not progress, the various trade union organisations could easily be confronted with financial problems in January. The totals allocated by the SNCB are used, in particular, to pay the wages of workers released for trade union purposes.
