Luton airport staff to strike over pay dispute
By Alan Jones, Press Association Industrial Correspondent
Some baggage handlers and check-in staff at Luton Airport are to stage a week-long strike in a dispute over pay.
Members of the Unite union employed by GH London will take action from March 3 after voting overwhelmingly in favour of walkouts.
The union said the action was in protest over a pay freeze.
GH London provides ground-handling services to Wizz Air at Luton Airport.
Unite regional officer Jeff Hodge said: "Unite has been calling for meaningful talks with GH London since the beginning of 2018.
"This strike vote is a result of the company's failure to listen to its workforce who face a cut in their living standards.
"Now that the company is prepared to meet, we hope we can get constructive talks under way to resolve this dispute."
