Stib workers on strike following attack on controllersMonday, 23 April 2018 17:01
“One of the controllers was struck in the temple and another just above the eye, which had to be stitched,” Stib spokesman Guy Sablon said. The youths had vanished by the time the police arrived on the scene. The law enforcers were therefore unable to make any arrests, but the investigation into the incident is ongoing.
Peterbos has the reputation of being a tough neighbourhood. However, Stib controllers will not stop checking commuters there. “Our quality charter stipulates that we need to check each stop a certain number of times, so we’ll continue carrying out these checks” Sablon said.
Stib said the strike action had no direct impact on commuters on Monday morning and that safety along its network was being ensured by the police. The strike, described as “emotional”, therefore had no effect on its network, Stib stressed.
