Swissport Uniform

Just wondering if all Swissport stations are providing the same uniform. At STN they are changing over to an all red ensemble that makes you look across between a fireman and Krusty the clown. The tops are not too bad but bright red trousers with two high viz stripes, blue knees and blue pocket linings are a bit much for the eye.

The main bugbear is about shorts, as no shorts are issued people have worn their own or cut down the trousers provided. Management are now saying that this is unacceptable and shorts cannot be worn (they are more worried about uniform at STN, than whether people actually do their jobs!). If groundstaff at other Swissport stations are provided with shorts or a slightly less garish colour scheme it would be handy to know.

Was taxying in yesterday and thought there was an unwell pax on board a Ryanair 73... then i realised it was the the handling crew and not a paramedic team waiting for the aircraft to come onto to stand..

That horrid uniform is being rolled out across their stations but for now only when new unform is required and for new starters.

Thankfully i left EGSS earlier this year and avoided having to were that! The grey one was bad enough, i mean whats wrong with navy blue?

In a dirty environment the grey was a stupid choice and as for the bright red .

Some mates of mine have the new uniform and others are still in the the grey, the new one makes them look like they are part of Ferrari's pit crew.

Regards.

From a Manchester point of view, most of us like the new red uniform its better than just blending in. It does look more professional than just a dull plain navy one.

All staff are being issued with the red uniform once the old gray uniform is worn out..
