New BAA offer set to end strike negotiations

Unite will call off threat of strikes after new pay offer

17 August 2010

British airport operator BAA is set to end strike negotiations with Unite after the firm offered staff an improved pay offer.

Key staff working at six UK airports had voted in favour of industrial action over a salary dispute but a new "much improved" proposal is set to be recommended to employees by the Unite union.

Brian Boyd, Unite's national officer, confirmed that no strikes would be held over the coming weeks as workers vote on the new deal.

No information has been released about the exact details of the agreement, although the salary increase is expected to be significantly higher than the previous offer which stipulated a 1.5 per cent rise.

Terry Morgan of BAA expressed his delight that an agreement could be reached and holidaymakers' travel plans would not be disrupted.

He said: "We believe that the unions are going to recommend acceptance of our offer to their membership, and if that's the case, then we are very, very confident that any disruption to our airport operations has now been avoided."
