Garbage collection crisis in Brussels City, Ixelles and Uccle

A trade union action within Bruxelles-Propreté on Monday disrupted the collection of bags in several Brussels Region municipalities.

According to Bruxelles-Propreté, it is mainly the municipalities of Uccle and Ixelles as well as the Marie-Christine/Bockstael and Bruxelles-Canal districts that are affected by this trade union action.

As part of a garbage collection reform, a hundred employees of the sector went on strike, said Michel Piersoul, union representative SLFP.

Last Friday initial discussions were organized with the authorities but as the workers did not feel heard, the strike was carried out.

If no agreement is reached, the strike could be prolonged in the coming days.
