The joint trade union front ACV/ACOD/VSOA will hold a national strike day on Friday 10 March. De Lijn staff will also participate in this. This causes disruption to De Lijn's services. De Lijn will provide an adjusted timetable on Friday 10 March. From Wednesday evening it will be available via the app and on the website of De Lijn.
The joint trade union front ACV/ACOD/VSOA will take action in the public sector next week. The week will conclude on Friday 10 March with a national strike day in all public sectors. With their action, the trade unions are calling on the government to strengthen public services at all levels.
The union action may cause disruption throughout Flanders for the services provided by De Lijn's buses and trams. It is currently not yet certain how great the impact on the service will be, and where it will be felt most.
In the context of the Decree on continuity of service, De Lijn will in any case provide an adapted timetable. This is composed on the basis of the willing drivers. This adjusted timetable will be known on Wednesday evening 8 March, and therefore also the extent of the nuisance.
From Wednesday evening March 8, the route planner will show all journeys that will run on Friday March 10, both on the website and in the app. Rides that are not running are not shown. The route planner always shows the most current situation; this may still change slightly after Wednesday, for example due to last-minute illness reports from drivers.
De Lijn regrets the nuisance the union strike is causing for its bus and tram passengers.
