The Minister of Climate and Environment was the guest of the morning of LN24.
Lhe STIB management committee, which met on Monday at the beginning of the evening, decided, after a narrow vote, not to appeal the recent judgment of the labor court ruling that STIB had discriminated against it. regard to a candidate for employment wearing a veil because of her religious beliefs. A decision that has caused a lot of reaction since last night.
This Tuesday morning, Zakia Khattabi (Ecolo), Minister of Climate and Environment was the guest of LN24. She returned to this news. “This affair has messed up everyone” regretted the minister. “I do not believe that Rajae Maouane is a communitarian or that François De Smet an Islamophobe. Today, these are the conclusions of this debate and it is a disaster. “
For the ecologist, it would be preferable for politicians to sit around the table and deconstruct the fears that each other may have in this debate. “The consequence today is that, in fact, the existing prohibitions prevent some women from accessing a certain level of employment. This is not true for men. Certainly STIB did not have this in mind and did not want to discriminate on the basis of gender. But this is the consequence. (…). I plead for a calm debate and then, at some point, we will have to decide. “
