The strike action at bpost is taking place for the third consecutive day on Friday.
Now the postmen are taking strike action. The Belga press agency has learned from a reliable source that more than 90% of them have staged a walkout.

Management and trade unions spent the day negotiating on Thursday. The current proposals are being studied, and a further meeting is planned for Monday.

The strike action is likely to continue into the beginning of next week.
