National demonstration over jobs, recruitment and organisation

Belgium Belgium
Unions in the Belgian federal finance ministry have come together to co-ordinate a national demonstration in Brussels on 23 January. They are protesting about a range of issues related to jobs, recruitment and organisation in the department. The unions point out that current policies mean that only three workers are recruited for every five that leave the service. This means that staff are already under pressure and that this situation will deteriorate from January 2009 when recruitment will be cut to only one new worker for every two that leave. The unions have compiled a detailed dossier of issues that they want addressed including demands for proper procedures for promotion and training and establishing a proper process of social dialogue.
