Employees at Brussels’ recycling parks have announced plans to strike over a lack of action regarding three cases of aggression against the works of Bruxelles-Propreté, says the trade union VSOA.
The first two instances took place towards the end of January, and the third occurred on 20 February when an employee of Brussels Net was assaulted at the Auderghem container park.
VSOA asked for extra security measures, including the hiring of four extra guards for the various sites.
When an answer from management was not forthcoming, the union filed its notice to strike, along with some more general demands.
“Most recycling parks have one to two security guards. It shows that we take matters seriously,” Brussels Net spokesman Etienne Cornesse said.
The issue of safety in Brussels container parks will be discussed on Thursday at the meeting of the committee for prevention and protection at work.
