KLM staff barred from striking

A Dutch court has ruled that ground staff working for KLM are barred from going on strike only hours before they had planned to do so at Amsterdam airport. The Haarlem court stated that it needed until August 11 to examine the issue and until then all strikes and work stoppages were barred.

KLM welcomed the ruling having previously warned that the walkout of some 150-250 ground staff could “potentially impact thousands of passengers resulting in delays, missed connections and/or baggage remaining behind.”

If the 90-minute strike had gone ahead, no luggage would be loaded or unloaded from aircraft and no aircraft would be guided to the takeoff runway.

The strike is over a pay dispute for FNV union members.
