Trade union members shut down Delhaize bottling plant: ‘No problem for customers’ | internal

Delhaize trade union members will close the supermarket chain’s wine bottling plant in Kobbegem (Asse), near Brussels, on Friday. This was reported by RTBF and confirmed by the company.

The wine bottling plant, where Delhaize bottles a large portion of the wine sold in the stores themselves, is closed. According to spokesperson Roel DeCelver, shipments of wine or empty items cannot enter and no outgoing shipments leave.

But production at the same packing plant will continue on Friday. There is sufficient stock in the distribution centers of the supermarket company. It seems “no problem for customers”. On Monday, Delhaize will process incoming and outgoing deliveries missed from Friday, and still read.

The Socialist Union says it is an act of solidarity by the employees. At the Delhaize headquarters, next to the bottling plant, the parking lot was also closed on Friday. But anyone can pass on foot, according to the speaker.

83 Delhaize stores closed

Employees protest the supermarket chain’s plans to privatize 128 stores under its own management. The announcement made last Tuesday has since led to massive protests by employees.

Also today / Friday, employees of Delhaize’s own stores are closing the supermarket doors en masse, especially in Brussels and Wallonia. 83 stores were closed on Friday, and 45 are open, it was reported earlier in the day. In Flanders, the majority of chain stores (70 percent) are open again. In Brussels and Wallonia, a single Delhaize under its own management will not open on Friday.
