Hi diamond,good to read you again.Your post just confirms what I have stated in the past.The very fact that someone within Swissport keeps saying everything is rosy just reinforces this.I'm sure he's out there, fingers twitching by his keyboard compiling his response!!!!

can't see how there is going to be redundancies, when s/air are just about coping with the work now when it comes in.don't forget its paytalk time, how the company loves their doom and gloom talks this time of year.Even when maxjet goes its only a few months and then they will be recruiting for the summer.they will probably get rid of some front of house staff and some managers which would make sense, how they love people in white shirts walking about doing next to nothing.Lots of talk of redundancies lets just wait and see.
Any redundancies will effect the ramp as much as the rest.

subjet 117 would love to reply to your message but not going down that road.would just like to say the gravy train is about to pull into the station. hey peps got a message from grizzler (who ever he/she is) that maxjet had to come back to stansted on full emergency, so more money lost there.

Nice

The day father Xmas drops off some young good looking ramp guys will be a start!! Like you say Wozzel, why get rid of manager who earns double what a member of dispatch or check-in earn when you could get rid of 2 staff who work hard and will do 18 hour days. I think some major re-structuring is in need!!

The AA lads you seen being driven around were a few mechs getting airport fam tickets for the driving permits. From what i've heard the bean counters seem fairly happy the way things are running at STN with Swissport......

Wozzel,please no names on this site,it's unnecessary and that's when things get personal. Believe me i'm not one for supporting the management's decision about redundencies but if things don't change then servisair will no longer operate at STN. This is a buisness were,if they need to make sacarifices to stay above the water then so be it.

The company are most likely looking for other clients in the aviation trade but they will not get very far if the BAA do not lower there landing fee's,that's why the company lost so much work because of the biggest overall company BAA!!!!!!

I believe we should be venting our anger and frustration on BAA and not the management of Servisair. They have a job to do as much as we have!
