(26 March 2021) The Belgian trade union confederations of FGTB/ABVV and CSC/ACV are on strike 29 March. The unions demand higher pay. The government and the employers say there is only space for 0.4% for 2 years. Workers disagree and want more room for negotiations in the sectors and companies. The unions also demand a substantial increase of the minimum wage and for workers on low pay like many in home care. EPSU has sent a message of solidarity to the affiliates.
