BRUSSELS, BELGIUM — Rail workers in Belgium are to strike over several days in the coming week as part of a union-led campaign for greater government investment in the network.
One train in four on average will run on Tuesday because of the action, called by the main rail unions, Belgium’s rail operator the SNCB said in a statement. The action will start late Monday from 2000 GMT.
Services in some regions will be completely halted according to media reports.
A 48-hour strike by train drivers on Wednesday and Thursday will further disrupt services.
Rail workers in Belgium have regularly denounced their worsening working conditions and called for greater government investment.
