Belgium: Public Sector Strike On Thursday To Protest Reforms


Public sector unions have called a general strike in Belgium for Thursday to protest against the government’s pension reforms.

The unions are complaining that the reforms are being pushed through parliament without consultations with them, Belgian media reported today.

Belgium’s public transport sector will be seriously affected by the 24-hour strike. Hardly any trains, buses, metro and trams are expected to operate from Wednesday night.

Air traffic will also be affected as traffic controllers at Brussels airport are participating in the strike action. Flying staff at Belgian airline companies are planning protests too.
