Scottish airport workers 'set for strike negotiations'

Employers are willing to take industrial action over pay.

07 June 2011

Scottish airports may need to consider some union bargaining if they are to avoid industrial action.

This is because security personnel at ten of the facilities in Scotland are being balloted on whether or not to take to the picket line over pay.

Members of Prospect - which works with more than 300 employers - have been offered a one per cent increase in their wages from Airport Management Services Ltd.

Alan Denney, Prospect's national officer, said: "Security staff recognise that their industry is not well paid, but they are tired of being singled out for inferior treatment by their employer."

He noted other individuals who work for Highlands and Islands Airports get "decent" pay.

Unless the strike negotiations can be resolved, there could be serious disruptions to travel plans.

One event that could be badly affected by the dispute is the Scottish Open Golf Championship, which is due to get underway on July 7th.
