Luggage workers at Kastrup resume work – E24

The flashy rooms at SAS in Kastrup in Copenhagen state that they will return to work at midnight after being active since Saturday.

Large amounts of luggage piled up at Copenhagen’s Kastrup Airport after SAS employees, who normally handle luggage at the airport, quit work on Saturday. On Monday night, the stunt was called off after SAS management asked its employees to come to work.

SAS Ground Handling employees have been on strike since Saturday. The chairman of Kastrup’s 3F union, Henrik Bay-Clausen, announced late Monday that employees would be returning to work at midnight.

The parlor has been operating at Kastrup Airport in Copenhagen since Saturday morning. The action has affected SAS and several other companies and has caused extensive air traffic delays. Despite the fact that the Danish Labor Court on Sunday concluded that the strike was against the collective agreement and ordered employees to report to work on Monday morning, this did not happen.

On Monday evening, SAS management sent a letter to employees stating that all shareholders «on Tuesday must expressly and unconditionally confirm that it will work according to a shift schedule. Otherwise, they will be deemed to have resigned”, reported Danish TV2.

– It is important for us to emphasize that it is employees who choose to terminate their own employment if they report that they refuse to come to work, SAS told Ritzau.
