Thumbs down Grizler

grizler are you implying that this great idea was rushed through?surely only an idiot would get rid of skilled men then pay overtime to cover the work load.

looks to me that servisair accountants pushed the panic button a tad to early.

trap2...push the button

think you could be right about the accountants pushing the panic button, but when was the last time you see one of them at the coal face.....more to the point....have you ever seen one......they just don't know what happens on the ground ,all they see are signs.

lets hope they are as good looking after the pension fund.

sat1 and servisair downsizing.

have heard this rumour myself , but it is not due to downsizing.....part of it is down to TV reception....its better on sat2 as swissport keep leaving a320s in front of the aerial on sat1....and like you say thats where most of the work is anyway....so there will be no need for cars to get from stand to stand....they will be able to shout instructions from rest room door......so no radios needed....plus in the summer months it is a bit of a sun trap so there might be some sun tan lotion needed.....bbq will be under the walkway just in case it rains......deck chairs on order.

and the beer is going to be in new 100ml bottles.

maxjet to return

anybody heard that maxjet are to make a comeback,as they have found a new backer.....they will use just 2 aircraft this time..

also have been told that this time they are having a new arrivals and departure lounge built at the diamond hanger at stn....so when it lands it can taxie straight there for fixing..

they will also do a no frills service..bring your own food and inflight entertainment....also bring a blow up bed as this can be used on board the aircraft or waiting for it to be fixed while in the hanger.

they have also come up with a new idea....its called air miles ..you only pay for the amount of miles you have travelled...so it will be very cheap.

another idea they have come up with is that there will be no pilot...the plane will be flown like a military drone from a computor in the usa.

a sixteen year old will fly you to you destination from the comfort of his bedroom .while he does his school homework......lets hope his mates dont come round.

they also need a new name ...any ideas?????

Well done to Servisair for getting the contracts to a few more companies at last, i hope it pays well. Not sure if this is true but i did bump into some one from Servisair only 2 days ago and we were just chatting as usual about things and the one thing that cropped up was the Air Berlin contract,not mentioning who but they did say that Air Berlin were looking at changing a few flights or pulling out all together so please can someone clarify this.....thank you.

diamond hanger...airberlin pulling out.

have not heard about airberlin leaving servisair stn .but have heard germanwings are joining .....and also that lot from norway are supposed to be next in line.....just hope they dont take the ps about us not getting many points in the eurovision song contest.......or i wont be best pleased.

maybe airberlin will fly into (london) southend airport next....and beat ryanair at there own game......the airport is looking for a new owner.

maybe servisair could move down there as ground handler...give them routeair boys a break..........and we could all have a day at the seaside......nice.

Routair have not been at Southend for a very long time, 'tis in house with Southend Handling now. As for Air Berlin B737's full of pax, the runway length is a no go-er for this without a (at times) large load penalty.

red four...south end to short.

if the runway at southend is not that long....how the hell did they get that vulcan there...or did it come down the A13.

heavy lift got their aircraft in there....shorts belfasts ect...and 707s so it cant be that short.....can it????

air berlin did fly some 146s...they should be ok, even the f100 might make it.........if not..... well i will go to the seaside someother day.

hi di hi.

Servisair redundancies Stn

Wozzel
I heard today that the STL's going around asking Ramp staff to work overtime ,only two weeks ago people lost their jobs and were put on 30 hours contracts.
The staff made redundant should be offered their jobs back if this a ongoing problem with staffing levels.
I also heard the Ramp staff on 30 hours only did one flight then went home.
A certain STL called out two Ramp staff paid them overtime and a call out and gave the Nightshift the early shoot!!!

Someone should be knocking on the Ramp Managers door and asking what is going on.
Anyone got any bks at Servisair what about your workmates that were made redundant.

TGWU, its not about no backbone at S/Air there seems to be a problem with the union reps in general. Well one at least who keeps trying to run the show and make the managers life easier, when he should be trying to make our life easier.

ALSO, whenever people have said anything to him he just says just be happy we still have a job.

What a joke, TGWU could you tell me how to stop my union membership as it goes straight from my wages?

Angry Re: Waste of money

D-ABAA, if your union payments come out of your wages all you have to do is phone over to cargo and ask the wages dept to cancel your subs.I know this because i did it myself a couple of weeks ago as i feel the same way you do..

how rite you are only 2 weeks ago 10 skilled workers{maybe a sickly bunch} were layed off ;now talk of taking more staff being taken on?how does that work ?do we get new contracts overnite ? i dont think so.this rushed plan was the most damning thing that could happen to servis air now we are left with a demoralized unskilled workforce .but who cares?aslong as the back office still get there tea {tea boy supplyied} all will run smooth.

Servisair redundancies Stn

D-ABBA,trap 2.
Cancelling your Union membership will not improve anything the only winners will be management when you have no unity.
Shop Stewards need to have a mandate from its members if this is not case you can have a vote of no confidence,and elect a new Shop Steward someone who will represent the members.
You are the Union and you must all be united and stick together or you will have more of the same ie split shifts,flexible rostering (more cuts in pay 30 hour contracts) 6 on 3 off new shift pattern.

Servisair management have had all their own way got rid of the 5 and 3 shift which they have been trying to get rid of for years.
If all those left cannot find their Bs i fear for the furture.
