Belgium -Luggage-handlers strike ended -May 16, 2013

A four-day strike at the Brussels airport came to an end as the luggage-handling firm Swissport reached an agreement with the trade unions. The strike by luggage-handlers over working conditions left more than 20,000 pieces of luggage stranded in the country's largest hub. The unions say staff shortages at the company have led to excessive work pressure and compromised workers' safety.
