Public services & transport strike on Wed Apr 22 (Brussels)

Due to a strike of the Socialist unions, all public services will be affected on Apr 22.

Your local Strike Manager reports: even if it will only be one of the unions striking, expect problems everywhere.

- trains: expect 1 out of 5 trains to be in service, but this might be limited to local service.
- MIVB/STIB/De Lijn: expect almost NO service on busses, trams and metro, in Brussels and other cities. In Brussels all unions will participate in this one, so they will prevent transport from leaving the garages.
- communes, public offices might stay closed
- postal services: might not be available (post offices and delivery)
- airport: other than the police actions (see separate topic in the forum) I didn't hear of strikes at the airport. Since public transport will be down, look for other ways to get there though!

The strikes are a protest against the federal and local governments.
