222 departures have been cancelled and around of 16,000 passengers to be affected, writes The Brussels Times. Departures from the company TUI, will instead depart from and land at airports in the Netherlands and France, according to the newspaper.

Passengers may be offered alternative flights or demand money back, but no other compensation will not be current, says the consumers ' organisation Test Aankoop to De Standaard. This is because it is not the airlines themselves who are on strike, but staff at the airports.

the SAS set three departures from the airport on Wednesday, according to presstalespersonen Mariam Skovfoged. Passengers will be rebooked to another day, " she says to DN.

Skeyes, the company in charge of the safety of aviation in Belgium, writes in a press release that they do not know how many of the airport staff will be on-site during the strike, and thus have to set all departures when the safety of passengers can not be guaranteed.

only part of a larger strike area, which includes Belgium all three regions. According to the Brussels Times include strike both the dock workers, police, prison staff, teachers, postarbetare and employees at the public service channel VRT.

the Background is a dispute over pay between several trade unions and the employers, which the unions have not accepted the offer on salary increase in the next two years. The talks have occurred mainly in the private sector but also unions in the public sector have joined the strike.

the private sector has no direct impact on the public, but we can't deny that we are extremely unhappy with the way things played out. Especially when it comes to salaries, " says Luc Hamelinck at the trade union ACV to VRT.

– From the federal treasury to the national employment service, the whole country will be stagnant, " says Gino Hoppe at the trade union ACOD to the Brussels Times.
