Stansted handling

I am very sorry to hear about the redundancies at Servisair.
They are a good multi-skilled workforce on the Ramp.
I hope they clear out the deadwood at last, too much overhead in the business and come back stronger and better for it.
Everybody at Servisair knows were the redundancies should come from remains to be seen if happens.

Things are looking better at Servisair but still far from well. It would just be nice to read something intelligent written by someone who actually knows what they're talking about, that would be worth replying to.

Wozzel if its REALLY that bad then why are you so bothered about not being made redundant? To me it sounds like you dont like working weekends, lates etc so go find yourself an office job somewhere where I doubt you would get anywhere near you S/Air wages.

pooor ol wozzle, you REALLY have got a 1 track mind. As been said, lets talk about the fact that jobs CAN be saved, if the union decide that the shift changes are good enough. Lets face it, whatever the pattern, faceing the new year in imployment has GOT to be better than chucking out the turkey, and getting the application forms out hey. Im SURE wozzle wouldnt be one of the "ill take the redundancy" then bottles it when offered to them ha ha. fingers crossed for ALL at s/air WHATEVER the colour of your shirt. HAPPY XMAS

All is not good at Serviseair i'm afraid,Maxjet pulled out this morning and apparently they have a clause called 'Chapter 11' which means they can still operate but don't pay any bills for up to 6 months.Just because Servisair have the Thomas Cook contract but that's not until March 31st it doesn't mean all is rosy.Ok we may still have a job a the moment but what if you were on the list to go,how do you think you would feel then,not good i bet and i reckon you lot would be talking just like wozzel,not that you talk like that already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Each to their own as they say,happy job hunting and a merry xmas to you all,lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!

I think you will find that the union didnt give its members a choice in the matter.And as for maxjet, you will probably find servisair were the ONLY ones to paid, poor ol aviance, they recruited, and now wil have to let people go before they start, maxjet scre**d us ALL over. Good luck to all at maxjet (well most anyway)
