Romania - Strike at Bucharest Otopeni Airport - January 31, 2016

Employees of GlobeGround Romania, the company that provides aircraft ground handling services and aircraft towing at Bucharest’s Henri Coanda Airport (Otopeni Airport), went on a warning strike for two hours on 22 January. The company’s employees decided to go on strike because they are dissatisfied with their salaries, the working hours, the size of the staff, and the activity’s planning and their working conditions. The leader of the Free Trade Union of Aeronautic Handling warned that the size of the staff and the activity’s standardisation in relation to the volume and working conditions are the most pressing problems, given that between 100 and 150 employees have resigned in the last two years, but the workload remained the same, or even increased. The working hours also represent a problem for the workers, as they no longer can conciliate working and family life.
