EPSU sends solidarity greetings to its Belgian affiliates on strike on December 22

The European Federation of Public Service Unions (EPSU) sends its solidarity to all its Belgian affiliates on strike on December 22, about the consequences of the Government agreement. The lack of consultation and information of the government has infuriated the trade unions that get to know the government plans on public pensions through the media. This unacceptable situation has pushed them to call for a 24h public sector general strike. This behavior is a copy and paste of the arrogant attitudes of many other European governments that have to silent to the markets but they hardly listen to the workers and their organisations. EPSU wishes its Belgian affiliates a successful mobilization and it would like to see the Belgian government into conciliation with the trade unions. EPSU asks its European affiliates to send solidarity messages to the Belgian affiliates.
