Re: 25-31/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

... Funny you mention egoism, because putting workers in bad conditions just to save money for the company and shareholders, and therefore saving your own ass is just what the management did. For the zillionth time: the reason why work pressure was high, was not "to save money for the shareholders"...

Re: 25-31/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

1. Thanks for confirming that was your tool to get what you want: to ruin people's holidays. 2. If you don't like to ruin holidays, then... don't do it. You just love taking things out of context and putting your own spin on someone’s words, don’t you? What? Out of their context? No, not at all. My...

Re: 25-26-27-28-29/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

Legacies from the past are the problem from all people working there . But even when I repeat that 10 times, you won't accept it. Sure, people are going through a difficult time there, with heavy workload and unpleasant working conditions. But that applies for all people working there. Not the leas...

Re: 25-26-27/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

No it’s not. It’s not Brussels airport that needs to do anything about workers that pay for aviapartner. Aviapartner needs to negotiate a contract which allows them to do their business properly. That’s not Brussels airport’s responsibility. Ok, but then you get situations like these. For example: ...

Re: 25-26-27/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

Respect has to goe both ways. Buying a ticket for 25€ and expecting a first class service is foolish. Someone is losing money so people can go on a cheap holiday. That someone is not the greedy airport who gives contracts to the lowest bidders. It is not going to be the management of the company th...

That “common public” going on vacation is what pays your salary and keeps your job! A bit of respect! And who says vacation of a few euros?

Re: 25-26-27/10/2018 Aviapartner strike at Brussels Airport

As a pilot i land quite often in BRU and my company is using aviapartner as well. We see so many times, when on blocks even, we really have to wait for them to show up to take care of everything, causing delays ofcourse. There is simply a lack of staff (like swissport as well) and they really have ...

Re: Strikes affecting Belgian airports in 2018

BRU no longer is a govt company; they can award the handling contracts to any company they choose. They are not exclusively a government company, but they are still subject to the legislation on public procurement. Disputes are handled by the Council of State. See for example . My cousin works at t...

Re: Strikes affecting Belgian airports in 2018

Then two handling agents that have a monopoly at Brussels Airport are in financial difficulties, you have got to explain me that! there is no monopoly, every few years Brussels airport company lets other company’s bid for a certain task at the airport.
