The delegations from Swissport and the VPOD union reached an agreement this afternoon which brings an end to their industrial dispute at Geneva Airport.
Ground handling delays and inconveniences are currently being experienced at many European airports. The recent adverse weather conditions are affecting different destinations, most heavily in the UK where the delivery of baggage is being severely delayed.
Swissport is concerned about the present situation at Geneva Airport, where some of its personnel have been engaged in strike action (with the support of the VPOD union) since last weekend. Swissport’s management in Geneva had further contact and discussions with the union yesterday (Monday), though the talks failed to produce positive results for the time being.
