Belgium - Social actions of air traffic controllers at Skeyes - March 31, 2019

Unions declare strike actions at the national air traffic services provider until March 23, 2019 because the demands of the workers (a list of 25 points, including requests for career interruption, promotions and bonuses) are not heard. Already at the beginning of the month problems arose due to many sick leaves. Later during the month actions disrupted work in the control centres.
