Multiple unions and civil society organizations have called for a strike and demonstration in Brussels on Thursday, November 8, to call for salary increases in the capital region to match those in Flanders and Wallonia. Demonstrators will gather at Place Sainte-Catherine at 10:00 (local time), while organizers estimate as many as 45,000 workers will participate in the strike affecting at least 19 public offices and hospitals. A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are likely in the vicinity of the demonstration.
Individuals present in Brussels are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, obey all instructions issued by the local authorities, and avoid all protests as a precaution.
