Liverpool’s John Lennon airport is bracing itself for Bank Holiday travel chaos after GMB launched a strike ballot.

The union is undertaking industrial action ballots for around 200 members working on the Swissport Easy Jet contract and Swissport Mainline.

Both ballots finish on August 7 2019 and if successful, industrial action will take place on August Bank Holiday weekend.



Eddie Parker, GMB Organiser, said:

“Our members working at Liverpool’s John Lennon are unhappy with Health and Safety issues, working practices, pay and the company’s breach of the recognition agreement.

“Despite numerous attempts at constructive discussions, our relationship with the company is fundamentally broken

“The last thing our members want to do is go on strike – and it is not too late for the company to get round the table and thrash out a deal.”
