BRUSSELS (Sputnik) - About 60 percent of public transport drivers in Brussels are engaged in a protest organized by local trade unions, a spokesperson of the CGSP trade union told Sputnik.

According to the General Central Office of Public Services (CGSP) official, the drivers are protesting against the safety situation, the lack of staff and poor technical conditions of public transport in the Belgian capital.

The CGSP spokesperson said that two of three Brussels' trade unions uniting the drivers of the Belgian capital were participating in the protest activities.

Due to the protest, the majority of metro lines, and half of all buses and tramway cars are not operating in Brussels. The traffic has been congested since 07:30.
