Strike negotiations ahead for ground staff?

Strike negotiations could be on the cards for ground staff at London City Airport.

16 February 2011

Ground staff working at London City Airport have been granted permission to hold a strike ballot as part of an ongoing row over workplace conditions and the terms and conditions of their employment.

In a move that might lead to strike negotiations between the staff and their employers, the GMB Central Executive Council has granted ground staff working for the Aviation Resources agency the chance to hold a ballot.

Staff employed by the agency mainly work at check-in and dispatch for Air France, CityJet and KLM.

According to the union, the staff seeking a ballot have not been given a pay rise since 2008. CityJet has gone so far as to refuse a rise in wages, it also claimed.

Strike negotiations and talks will be held at ACAS on February 21st and if progress cannot be made, strikes will go ahead.

The GMB union has nearly 610,000 members spread across a number of sectors and has been up and running for more than 120 years.
