Spain -Swissport reported hiring temp workers to break strike -July 05, 2013

The Confederacion Sindical de Comisiones Obreras (CCOO), Union General de Trabajadores (UGT), and Union Sindical Obrera (USO) have raised the alarm over strike-breaking actions by Swissport. Swissport workers at eight airports have been organising strikes since last month, when negotiations over a collective agreement broke down. The unions report that Swissport is hiring temporary agency workers to replace the employees on strike, as well as forcing administrative personnel to perform tasks usually done by the striking workers.
