Birmingham International Airport could face a strike over the Christmas period if the Amicus trade union takes action over the dismissal of two members of staff.

The union will cast its votes on November 3rd with the results expected on November 18th.

If it decides to take action, staff will strike at Birmingham International during the run up to Christmas.

Amicus officer, Peter Coulson, claimed: 'Birmingham International Airport is facing the second strike over Christmas in a row because two of our members with 52 years unblemished service between them have had their careers ended on grounds that are completely without foundation.'

If you are using Birmingham International around this time, it is worth checking travel news before you set off for the airport.

Pre-booking any airport hotel accommodation and airport parking should also be considered, in case stranded travellers fill up the hotels.

Reserving an airport hotel room can conveniently be done online.
