The Christian trade union ACV-Transcom (CSC-Transcom) will consult its base on possible strike action at Skeyes, which manages Belgium’s airspace, ACV/CSC’s Kurt Callaerts said on Tuesday.
The union had given the Skeyes management notice in early February of its intention to take strike action in connection with a list of about 25 grievances, related mainly to breaks in service, appointments and allowances. Another point of contention is a new training centre at Steenokkerzeel, opened under a joint-venture partnership whose transparency is being questioned by the union.
The union had originally set 23 February as the target date for its strike action but opted to wait until a conciliation meeting, which took place on Tuesday. Callaerts said ACV/CSC would now inform its base and its trade union committee and assess the situation on Friday.
A new meeting with the Skeyes management is scheduled for 11 March.
