Gate Gourmet debacle continues

By Administrator |

The catering company that brought Heathrow Airport to a grinding halt on August 10 when it dismissed wildcat strikers has finally announced details of a non binding voluntary redundancy programme and compensation payments for those

workers who were dismissed.
The well publicised action brought British Airways' (BA) Heathrow Airport operations to a standstill when its catering supplier's dismissed workers were joined in a 24 hour sympathy strike by other airport workers.
Significantly, BA has also confirmed that is has now agreed new contractual terms with Gate Gourmet which it is prepared to sign, but only after the catering company and the Transport and Workers Union resolve their various differences. Currently, BA's long haul operations out of Heathrow are now being supplied with all of their catering needs, although some other operations have been affected on shorter haul routes.
