I heard last night that lots of Belizean workers were going on strike today (Friday) and that the strike would be in effect until they got resolution of their grievances. There was concern that this would affect power, phones, and maybe be the indirect cause of cancelled flights.

Can anyone confirm/deny?

Thanks.

Strike is on. So are power, phones and water so far. Power was off last night in the city for an hour or so. I expect outages of all 3 all day long and we'll see what happens. The unions are serious and may have drawn the proverbial line in the sand. All services for visitors will be operating as usual-flights, buses, hotels, tours, restaurants, won't affect you at all.

Thanks for the info. I'm in Dallas, but my Belizean husband is there right now, visiting his family in various parts of the country.

He's scheduled to come home on Sunday, so if he doesn't show up, this is a fabulous excuse!
