Belgium - Prison workers ended strike - June 30, 2016

Prison agents on strike at the Arlon prison met at a general assembly. They decided to resume work and to cease the strike underway for 50 days at Arlon prison and other establishments of the South of the country.

During the dispute, the work of the prison workers was partly taken over by the police and the military.
