strike looms

Baggage handlers employed by Equity Aviation have threatened to strike because of the company's system of docking everyone's pay if one worker damages or steals from luggage or causes a delay. The company said that workers' grievances come as a surprise. It added that pay docking involved a performance-related penalty that had been in place for four years and was part of the wage agreement.

"As a company we have a similar scenario with airlines and our clients. It's an industry norm," Equity Aviation said. - I-Net Bridge
