I wish Dutch workers did the same
Union membership is growing over there
As the workday is nearing its end, I would like to give a shoutout to all the politicians, employers and deranged lunatics that have spoken out like absolute crybabies today against the strikes. In times of record corporate profits you are choosing the side of the companies instead of the side of the people that can’t afford shit anymore. Your tears were very entertaining today. Special shoutout to the Belgian Minister of Finance that can get jack shit done but has the nerve to tweet about how wrong this strike is. And to the Employers Union that is saying this strike is destroying OUR wealth. Our as in capitalist wealth, yes. The wealth of the workers is non existing.
My greatest respect to all the comrades in this country that joined us today. Let this give us hope for the next months, because shit is going down soon as well.
It makes me very happy to see such strong worker solidarity (and lackeys losing their shit).

Are these all port employees? There doesn’t look to be many. Is it just how many people work there?
No lol, it’s just a picture of a picket line. There are 8500 dockworkers and the entire port employs 140k people.
Out of all the dockworkers, two small companies were working today. The Union went to talk to them and got them to lay down their work. The only people working in the port today are people that have to guide ships into the port, for safety reasons. But their cargo will not be taken care of today. Most of those 140k people are on strike or not working. The strike is split up in picket lines at the companies, so there is no large group to take pictures of, outside of some rallies in cities.
Thank you for the explanation!
Comrades blocking a road entrance to Port of Gent. They have apparently gone rogue on the strike and decided to do something more radical ✊🏽
There are only like 100 people on the site so probably like 100.
Where are the millions of bots that we supposedly have on our side
Apart from the Port of Antwerp, workers at the Port of Brugge and Port of Gent have also stopped working today, closing all three ports in the country. Several industrial areas throughout the country have also been blocked by strikers, blocking many factories from operating or receiving goods. A Volvo plant had to shut down entirely today.
Brussels Airport is operating at 40% strength and Charleroi Airport, the second largest, is shut down entirely.
Train services are disrupted in the entire country. In Flanders, 25% of the trains are running, in Walonia, it is practically 0%.
Logistically speaking the country is hit hard, but a lot of people are either striking or working from home, as office workers tend to strike less.
