BAGGAGE staff at Stansted Airport have begun a 24-hour strike today over pay.
More than 30 members of the GMB were taking industrial action from 3am today after rejecting a 1.5 per cent pay offer from their employers Airfield Services.
The GMB accused Airfield Services of refusing to go to the conciliation service Acas to settle the dispute which the union estimated would cost a total of £300 a week to resolve.
Stansted said it expected minimal or no disruption to flights because of the contingency plans put in place to deal with the walkout.
