Non-profit sector unions protest over staffing and funding

Belgium Belgium
The LCB-NVK and BBTK-Setca trade unions brought together several thousands members from the non-profit sector to protest in Brussels on 19 June. The demonstrators passed the offices of the Flemish and Walloon governments as well as the office of federal health minister Maggie Block. The unions see this protest as laying down a marking for more action in the autumn if the government fails to deliver on increased funding for health and social care. In the autumn, the unions also hope to start negotiations on new multi-year agreements for the healthcare sector. These will cover pay and conditions, quality jobs and higher staffing levels.
