Airport contractor to meet with union over labour dispute

Thursday, June 9, 2016

The Ministry of Tourism, Transport and Municipalities has been advised that representatives from the Bermuda Industrial Union and Menzies Aviation will be meeting to discuss a dispute involving a group of ramp workers at the L.F. Wade International Airport.

Menzies Aviation is a private company contracted by airlines to provide ground handling services. It is understood that some of the Menzies employees temporarily withdrew their labour in the dispute over ongoing negotiations surrounding a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The Ministry has been advised that Menzies still has a sufficient number of workers and management processing flights as per normal.  
There has been no disruption or delays to scheduled flights as a result of the action.
