CGSP Cheminots, CSC Transcom and SLFP Cheminots once again denounce the lack of federal government investment in SNCB and Infrabel. They reiterated other demands, such as measures to put an end to the “persistent deterioration of the working conditions of railway workers, mainly due to lack of staff”.
A 24-hour strike by railway workers had already taken place on October 5, followed by another day of disruption on November 9, last Wednesday, during a day of action and general interprofessional strike led by the unions.
The notice filed on Tuesday covers, this time, a strike action which will last from Monday, November 28, 10 p.m. to November 29, 10 p.m.
If the strike becomes effective, SNCB will once again draw up a transport plan with the staff who are willing to work. During the previous strike, a third of the IC trains and a quarter of the S and L trains had run. The disturbances had however been much greater in Wallonia than in Flanders.
