Two strike movements, for different reasons, are impacting bus traffic in Charleroi and Liège on Monday.

In Charleroi, a “movement of mood linked to purchasing power” has been disrupting bus traffic since Thursday. This Monday, the deposits of Genson and Anderlues are blocked, indicates the Tec on its site. Twenty-six bus lines from the first are thus affected, as well as eleven other bus and metro lines from Anderlues. In addition, Jumet buses and metros do not leave. Some of the staff from the Jumet depot came down to block the entrance to the parking lot of the “Left Bank” shopping center.

This movement on the initiative of part of the staff is supervised by the unions. Drivers are protesting the rising cost of living. This strike will last until Wednesday inclusive. A meeting is scheduled for Wednesday to decide whether to continue this action or not.

Wildcat strike in Liège

In addition, all the lines of the Jemeppe depot, in the Liège region, are currently at a standstill, announces the TEC on its website. Due to a spontaneous strike movement in Jemeppe following an incident that occurred on the network on Sunday evening, no lines from this depot are running.

“There is no bus this morning. There is surely a wildcat strike near the Jemeppe station”, reported Pascale this Monday morning at 6 a.m. via the orange Alert us button. “Wildcat bus strike in Jemeppe-Sur-Meuse”confirmed Michael a few minutes later.

The following lines are not insured: 2, 3, 9, 15, 27, 32, 40, 41, 42, 45, 46, 47, 49, 53, 56, 82, 85, 87, 91, 122, 156 and 285. Lines 22, 23, 48, 58, 61, 81, 94, 145 and 146 are partially disrupted. Line 86 is limited to the Tout-Voie roundabout.
