Consultations will be held at ministry of transport later on Monday following strike measures last weekend by ground staff at Paphos airport over the extension of airport concessions.
A new ground handling company is expected to take over the service of EasyJet and other airlines.
EasyJet, which operates many flights from the UK mainly to Paphos airport but also to Larnaca, had until recently been served by LGS Handling Ltd, which intends to lay off 70 workers at Larnaca airport and another 40 at Paphos airport.
According to workers’ union Sek, based on the existing regulations, the new ground handling company has an obligation to absorb the laid-off staff.
This issue will be discussed at Monday’s meeting between the ministry of labour, union representatives and the companies involved.
Last Saturday night people on board eight planes were stuck on the runway for up to four hours when ground staff there staged a wildcat two-hour strike.
