Belgium - Call centre campaign against long hours - November 5, 2009

Belgium's call centre unions, including CNE and SECTa, promoted their "Needs more hands?" campaign call centre action month. The campaign focuses on key issues for workers in the industry such as long and unsociable working hours which are incompatible with family and personal life. The unions are calling for a change to rostering systems which currently do not provide enough time and flexibility for workers to plan their private commitments.
