Malev Ground Handling union forms strike committee

History

Talks between the management and union of Malev Ground Handling - a unit of national carrier Malev - on a collective contract have been broken off and the Air Transport Association Union (LESZ) has formed a strike committee, LESZ chairman Attila Csorba told MTI on Tuesday.

The contract ended on December 31, 2011, but the union wants to extend it, with some changes, for another three years, Mr Csorba said. He said the union’s demands would not raise payroll costs.

Malev Ground Handling told MTI the only question in dispute concerning the collective contract was the length of time for which it should be extended. LESZ is demanding a 10% pay increase and a 5% rise in headcount, the airline said.

The first round of strike talks is to take place on Wednesday, said Malev Ground Handling and LESZ.
