Confederations plan protests against austerity budget

Belgium Belgium
The three confederations are coordinating a series of protests and strikes against the new government's proposed austerity budget. The union argue that the budget is socially unjust, with workers' paying the price and no attempt to get the wealthy and high-paid to make a large contribution. Unions are concerned about the threat to the wage indexation system, the scope to negotiate pay increases and plans to increase the retirement age to 67. A national demonstration on 6 November will be followed by regional strikes on 25 November and 1 December and a general strike on 15 December.
