MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Belgium's trade unions went on strike against the proposed job cuts, causing disruptions in the operation of public transport and Brussels Airport, local media reported Friday.
The industrial action also targeted major multinational companies, who support governmental policies, the Flanders news site said.
The strike resulted in about 120 flights delays and cancellations of nearly 30 incoming flights in the international airport of Brussels, while waiting time of public transport increased, the media outlet added.
The biggest disruption in the work of public transport reportedly took place across Flanders, the Dutch-speaking northern part of Belgium. In the provinces of Flemish Brabant and West Flanders, several bus lines did not get on the routes.
