Belgium -Deal concluded for luggage handlers -August 11, 2015

Employees of luggage handlers Aviapartner reached an agreement with the management about new contracts, which wipes out the danger of more strikes. The employees had downed tools at Brussels Airport in a wildcat strike. Workers complained about a permanent staff shortage and an old-fashioned working environment. After a long meeting between trades unions representatives and the management, a deal was reached and the strike stopped. The talks ended with a positive outcome: 25 extra people will be engaged on a temporary basis while others with a temporary contract will see this extended to the end of 2015.
