Most of the garbage will not be collected as a result of the demonstration today by the public services. “According to our information, no garbage trucks are out,” the City of Brussels announced.
“Many workers didn’t come to work but there is no picket strike,” said Muriel Di Martinelli, president of the CSPF trade union (local and regional government) in Brussels.
The trade union cannot say if any garbage will be collected today (Tuesday) but work will be heavily disrupted. People who took out their rubbish bags are asked to take them back and put them out on next collection day.
A demonstration is organized today (31 May) to protest against the federal government’s austerity policies. Some 10,000 participants are expected in Brussels.
