The trade unions at the Flemish public transport company De Lijn have submitted a strike notification. They are protesting against the privatisation of certain activities.
The privatisation of, for example, the on-call bus and school transport, and the dismissal of staff are offensive to the trade unions. Action is possible from 9 October.
“We are calling for an unambiguous collective labour agreement with job security for all De Lijn staff against the Joint Committee of 6 October,” says the undertaking.
