Busy arrival day expected at Schiphol on Sunday due to Ascension weekend

New consultations are scheduled for Monday between the airport and the trade unions FNV and CNV about the staff shortage and work pressure. The unions want an agreement to be reached before Wednesday 1 June on tackling the workload, otherwise actions will follow. At the beginning of the May holiday, chaos ensued at the airport due to a wildcat strike caused by angry employees about the workload, which is high due to staff shortages.

The corona pandemic cost many airport staff their jobs and many of those who left did not return because they found better paying jobs elsewhere. People also want to go on holiday again now that the travel restrictions in many countries are gone. Since the May holidays, this combination, together with the staff shortage at, among others, security guards and baggage handlers, has caused enormous crowds and chaos at the airport.
