Two parties call for guaranteed minimum service during Stib strikes

Oct 12, 2017
0

The Brussels parliament will be asked to debate in the coming weeks whether public transport operator Stib should be required to offer a guaranteed level of service in the event of a strike.

Vincent de Wolf, the head of the opposition MR party in the region's parliament, which is tabling the proposition, said: "We are not calling into question the right to strike - we just want a minimum level of service for those who need it: people with urgent hospital appointments for example. If you ask the people of Brussels, I think it is a reasonable proposition."

It is the second time that MR has tried to establish a minimum service for Stib. This time it will present the findings of a study into the busiest bus, tram and metro lines, and argue that these lines should be a matter of priority.

The idea has the support of the cdH party - which is one of the partners in the coalition that has a majority in the Brussels parliament. It says Brussels should not be "paralysed" by industrial action. Brussels mobility minister Pascal Smet has rejected the idea.
