Good News?


I just got off the phone with my lawyer - well, the one of ABVV that's handling my file - and apparently, he had some very good news. I enquired about the court date that was set concerning my claim and he said that the complete claim was accepted after all.

The problem was that the curator didn't have access to one of my prior contracts and thus couldn't agree with my claim. After ABVV talked to the curator, and probably provided him with the missing contract, he accepted the claim as is. This is certainly a step in the right direction, since now I'll be invited by ABVV to fill out all forms and we can start processing the claim towards "Fonds Sluiting Ondernemingen".

In short : It could take about a year before I see a dime, but at least we're heading in the right direction. Now I just have to wait for the invitation to arrive.


Good news is always good. Please remind me what this case is regarding, as I have not paid enough attention and can't read "Fonds Sluiting Ondernemingen". A link to an old entry would be OK. Thanks in advance!

It will be a long journey, till your file gets closed, so be patient my friend! You know the Belgian administration is not the fastest one in the world! But leave it to your union, they know how to handle these things. Just one advice: read everything carefully yourself as well, because sometimes they miss some important things (depends on the person handeling your file)! I here about 'worst case scenario's' once in a while, just because of bad co�rdination! And most of the time they could have been prevented. Don't want to scare you, just pay attention to every lettre and everything they say to you. Ask questions and if they don't answer: keep asking (that's why you pay them after all, to get support and answers)! But on the other hand: I know you will do so!
