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". Untill now, the shareholders have lost between 15 mio € and 40 mio € with their investment in Belgian aviation (negative own assetts plus long term bank loans they heritaged from the previous owner). And now the cost of this strike has to be added to that loss: indemnity invoices from airlines, no income for six days while most people were officially not on strike.

Or do the trade unions, the strikers and their supporters think that Ryanair, TUI, and others will not demand reinbursement of the costs they had to make?
Again Passenger this is NOT the responsibility of the employees it looks here that this strike was the only weapon left over to get better and normal work conditions.

It's in Dutch but maybe this can help:

So why was the work pressure so high if not to save money? It is just obviously that people had to work much harder in order to save money.

I read that TUI is loading their own planes with people who are qualified to handle the equipment.
Anyone can load bags in a plane but a towback truck?
Can someone explain this to me.

Which equipment are they using?
It’s tec4jets who’s doing the pushbacks.
Right, they own their own tractors to get the planes in and out the hangar.
Thanks.
