"The decision to call industrial action comes at the end of a 90-day consultation period with employees and trade unions, relating to the change of working patterns.
"This change was announced back in November 2011 to protect core jobs. The change of working patterns allows a reduction of costs without the need to make people redundant.
"The current economic climate and the impact it has had on the aviation industry means that Swissport Stansted has fewer flights to service. This has resulted in a significant reduction in the company's revenue.
"Swissport is disappointed that the GMB trade union has decided to call industrial action."
