Strike of Swissport Cargo employees at Brussels Airport


The frustration and dissatisfaction about working conditions among employees are so deep that they went on strike and are not ready to resume work, despite a management proposal.

The proposals of Swissport management to solve the crisis will be presented to both the night shift and the day shift, both of which will proceed to a vote (at 7 am Sunday morning). The strike will, therefore, continue until tomorrow (Sunday) morning. The management will meanwhile formalise the agreement.

If the agreement is approved by a majority of workers, the work will be resumed Sunday morning.

UPDATE 23 SEP 2018, 11:45

Day 2 of the strike at Swissport Cargo. The unions claim that there is insufficient staff, insufficient material to carry out the work. They demand more respect and hope that management will come up with a more acceptable proposal today. Meanwhile, the strike continues.
