Belgium - Strike at Segal - June 30, 2017

A strike picket line has been organised at the Segal factory in Flémalle. Segal is a sister manufacturer to Eurogal, the galvanising line of Arcelor Mittal, owned by Tata Steel. Workers at the company, which produces some 600,000 tonnes of galvanised steel annually are demanding a wage increase. This follows a reorganisation of the work structure as a result of an investment of twenty million euros, to increase the production line by 30,000 tonnes. Trade unions said that discussions were scheduled to resume with the management to finding a solution which both parties agree on.
