Rail strike is going to hit Belgium in July the 27th, during Tomorrowland
The syndicat indépendant des cheminots (SIC) has indicated that it is maintaining the strike notice for Saturday, July 27.
Traveling from and to Tomorrowland could become harder this weekend, especially on Saturday because of a strike on the Belgian rail network.
The syndicat indépendant des cheminots (SIC) (independent railway workers’ union) has announced the strike for July, 27, to denounce a lack of recurrent staff among train attendants. The main concern is that many rail workers would not be able to take their vacations this summer, while it is not uncommon for planned days-off to be called off at the last minute to lack of available staff.
CIS spokesman Pascal Dumon said: “Our request is simple: get 15% of guaranteed leave and we are still hoping for a reaction from HR Rail and SNCB by Saturday.”
The second weekend of Tomorrowland is set to kick off this Thursday, with The Gathering. The festival will continue until Monday so, if you planned to reach the festival by train you need to re-plan your travel.
