At the Brussels airport, there are also many cancellations today. The background is a strike spontaneously proclaimed by baggage workers on Thursday evening. Until yesterday, about 250 flights were canceled. As a spokeswoman for the Belgian news agency’s Airports announced, alone today around 150 of the 550 connections will fail.According to trade unionists, the strike is aimed, among other things, at high levels of work-related stress. Specifically, it is about unclear pause rules. An end to the strike was initially not in sight.The negotiations between the service provider Aviapartner and the unions should continue today. Yesterday late in the evening the talks had been ended without result. At the beginning of the holiday week to All Saints‘ Day, the work stoppage also hits many vacationers.
