This Friday, 24 June, is a national strike day, as requested by the Socialist union. These are the expected consequences:
- train: not all unions will participate, but delays are expected. Sometimes Brussels is worse off than other regions, because it doesn't take a lot to block the north/south passage. - Brussels MIVB/STIB: expect no traffic on metro, busses, trams, since the other unions announced they will also participate. If there is any, it will be an exception so do check the website. - Airport: they don't expect many problems for flights, but luggage handling (as was seen a few weeks ago) could be in trouble. They apparently don't like working. - public services: not a good day to have your passport renewed... Hospitals should be running normally. - schools: not many problems expected, schools should be open - postal services: could be strongly affected - shops: your local supermarket might be blocked, so shop on Thursday!
