No more back-payments for refugees

The socialist public service union ACOD staged a protest on the Scheldt Bridge in Oudenaarde (East Flanders) on Friday Morning. The action blocked shipping until Friday afternoon. The union is unhappy about the imposition of a minimum service requirement on lock keepers during periods of industrial action. The protest was also intended to show general discontent at cuts being made to federal and Flemish public services.
