Aberdeen Airport Strike
Update:-Tuesday 20th, 2016 Swissport baggage handling strike is cancelled. Union will take offer back to the troops for approval. Excellent news.
December 17, 2016 Unite union members who are baggage handlers and check-in staff who work for Swissport will strike on Friday and Saturday December 23rd and 24th.
The Swissport company does baggage handling and check-in services at these airports:-Aberdeen, Belfast City and International, Birmingham, Bristol, Bournemouth, Cardiff, Doncaster, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Gatwick, Glasgow, Heathrow, Leeds/Bradford, Luton, Manchester, Newcastle, Southampton and Stansted Airport.
How did this company get so powerful, or should we say union. Or how stupid are the airport's to hire this company.
All airlines and airports will have a contingency plan in place. Busiest route is to Heathrow. We know from past industrial action Heathrow will have plenty of managers and volunteers to help you.
Less busy the airport less likely for disruptions. More negotiations to take place on Tuesday. For this and other strike information, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic www.easytravelreport.com
