CSC announces a day of general strike on November 9 in Belgium
After the FGTB, it is the CSC's turn to announce a day of strike in Belgium on November 9.
The CSC will organize a day of general strike and action on November 9, the president of the Christian union, Marc Leemans, announced on Tuesday. The FGTB had already announced a few weeks ago the organization of an interprofessional general strike on the same day.
The FGTB had already announced a few weeks ago the organization of a general interprofessional strike on the same day. The CGSLB is, however, not in favor of such action. The CSC explains that it conducted "a wide consultation" and that it has once again confirmed the difficult financial situation of many workers, single people and parents. They "fear to face a freezing winter. Many people can no longer keep their heads above water and are drowned by the vertiginous rise in their bills", denounces the union.
The CGSLB, for its part, is not calling for a general strike. The liberal union will however participate in the strikes that will be organized in the sectors and companies on that day, they said on Tuesday, also noting that they attached great importance to individual freedom. In this spirit, the CGSLB asks that the choice of workers who do not want to strike should be respected and the union says it is opposed to blockages of traffic.
