Day of action over cross-sector negotiations

Belgium

The CSC/ACV and FGTB/ABVV trade union confederations are planning a day of protests and strikes on 29 March to push their claims in the stalled negotiations over the biennial agreement for the private sector. This follows two days of action in February in support of the unions’ demands to increase what they say is an unacceptable 0.4% margin for negotiations over and above what’s provided by indexation. The confederations are also calling for a higher minimum wage, action on careers and retirement and a review of the legislation that regulates pay negotiations in the private sector. The CGSLB/ACLVB confederation is not joining the action but is coordinating with the other confederations in circulating a “Pay gazette” that sets out all the key arguments on pay and how the negotiations work.
