    HAS is the ground handling company for JL, CX, KA, etc at HKG. They have started work to rule in the past week but will upgrade their action from Monday (Dec 26). They will refuse to work over time for a week. Some flights will be delayed and baggage wait time will increase as a result. So if you are flying out of or arriving HKG on their customer airlines, make sure you take the possible delay into account.

    Below are the list of airlines that could be affected by this industrial action.

    So the union and HAS still couldn't reach an agreement. The HAS union might continue the industrial action after Jan 1. They might even strike if HAS insists to cancel the special bonus.

    In the past few days, HAS has canceled the time off of their management staffs and assigned them to handle the baggages. They also raised the overtime pay to minimize the effects of the industrial actions
