Threat of Christmas strike at the Airport
Wednesday 14th November 2012, 2:40PM GMT.
BAGGAGE handlers and check-in staff at the Airport say they are prepared to strike over the Christmas holiday period in protest against having their hours cut.
Around 30 Servisair employees have asked their union, Unite, to organise a ballot for industrial action over proposals by the company to change their working week from 39 hours to 33.
Servisair is currently in talks with both Unite and its employees because it wants to readjust working hours when the Airport is less busy. It says that the same measures are the norm in UK airports.
However, Unite spokesman Nick Corbel has warned that his members are angry and will take action over the long-standing dispute.
