Article Fears over flights as workers threaten action Samson Lee  Wednesday, October 26, 2011 Unionists among airport ground staff are threatening industrial action that could affect flight schedules of 31 airlines.  Jardine Aviation Services Limited Employees Union, which represents about one third of 1,000 workers, made the threat as  it pressed for an increase in salaries and higher pay for overtime.  Members will decide on a strike or work-to-rule action if there is a collapse in talks with management tomorrow.  On prospects, union executive committee member Fu Ka-lok complained: "The management failed to show sincerity in the  past three rounds of talks," and action by members could lead to flight delays.  Of about 50 union members who attended a meeting yesterday, 98 percent voted in favor of industrial action.  Cathay Pacific, Dragonair and Japan Airlines would not be affected by industrial action as they have their own staff.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
