Ryanair has a baggage handlers strike going on right now at Madrid Airport. Although Ryanair announce that workers are now back to work, airline is still on alert. Ryanair adjusted to this strike by giving passengers a choice of landing in another airport, change flight to a different day or fly with no luggage. Perhaps your airline will follow a similar routine or use managers as handlers or bring in scabs.

British Airways have called for 400 voluntary cabin crew redundancies beginning March 2013. More demonstrations planned Sunday, March 6 at IAG headquarters London.

February 23 One strike for Willy Walsh - 0 for Unions this week. 1,200 flights cancelled, millions of Euros lost. Unions complain they were not noisy enough this week and plan to do better in March to "Move the will of IAG". 70,000 passengers effected, 60,000 moved to different flights or airline, some 10,000 had money back. Minimum service worked out nicely, as well as could be expected for the islands. 
We had very few complaints about Spanish baggage handlers this week. Perhaps this will heat up in March along with pilots.
