Among the changes that will be announced Friday at the end of the next National Security Council, there is the list of sectors of activity “essential” for the functioning of the country in times of health crisis.
Friday evening, the National Security Council meets again in a broad way, and important announcements should be announced. We are talking about a tightening of the confinement, an extension of the current measures, and also… changes to the list of “essential workers”, which has already been modified with the addition of hairdressers, this week.
A list that was established in an emergency, necessarily, and some sectors make a face. This is the case of Brussels taxis, for example, who would like to be forced to stop their activities in order to be able to benefit (the details remain to be established for everyone) of financial support measures.
Unions Must Come Out
Prime Minister Sophie Wilmes asked the social partners in the Group of 10 to get in touch with the National Crisis Center in order to refine the list of essential economic sectors for the meeting of the National Security Council on Friday, she said in plenary session of the House on Thursday.
The head of government was arrested by the head of the PTB group, Raoul Hedebouw. According to the calculations of the Communist Party, the definition of the sectors is so broad that it includes from two to three million workers and certain companies profit from it while they produce material like plastic chairs or armaments. The rules of containment, in particular of social distance or teleworking, are the object of a greater flexibility because the companies of these sectors cannot close.
“These obligations cannot be applied linearly in all sectors, for example social distance for nursing staff. But just because these rules are not completely mandatory does not mean that they cannot be applied.“, underlined Mrs. Wilmes.”If it is not clear enough, we will clarify Fridayi “, she added.
