In accordance with the general strike on Wednesday, police officers on duty at Liège Airport have been on a 24-hour strike since Tuesday evening at 23:30.

The CGSP union that represents workers in the public sector announced that aeronautical police would go on strike on site for 24 hours.

This has resulted in the closure of one of the site's border checks, although there have been no reported disruptions to flight schedules.

The union had filed a strike notice on 31 August to demand better protection for the workers against the current cost of living crisis as well as protesting recent staff redundancies, after having already gone on strike at the end of August.
