Air Sector Workers Have Had It

Europe is bracing for a summer of “labour unrest” as inflation and staff shortages have resulted in labour protests across the continent – particularly visible in the transport industry as airline, airport and railway workers are beginning to walk out, reports the New York Times.

Security workers at HAM are expected to walk out on 08JUN, pilots for Scandinavian Airlines are threatening to strike for higher pay, and check-in staff at British Airways are planning on walking out later in JUL, pushing for better conditions at LHR.

The Times reports that job vacancies as the result of the pandemic have created poor working conditions in the transport industry as demand for air travel has risen too quickly for companies to fill positions.
