T&G union in bid to halt airport job cuts

The
Transport and General Workers Union (T&G) is meeting with aircraft
maintenance firm FLS today, to protest at the jobs cuts at Stansted and
Manchester airports announced last week.

T&G,
the largest trade union at Danish-owned FLS, will be joined by representatives
from the other unions involved as the campaign to save the jobs gathers
momentum.

The
T&G said that more than 420 skilled jobs could to be lost if the plans are
implemented.

T&G
spokesman John Street said: “When passenger numbers are growing and there are
plans to expand both Stansted and Manchester airports, we find it hard to
accept why the company is planning to cut back.”
