Aberdeen airport workers to strike in pay dispute

Workers at Aberdeen airport have voted for strike action in a dispute over pay.

Three 24-hour walkouts are planned on July 20, August 2 and August 16.

The industrial action was confirmed by the Unite union after 88% of workers rejected the latest pay offer.

Unite members have now rejected two below inflation wage offers on the back of below inflation increases over the last two previous years.

The prospective action will involve around 170 workers at the airport include security and airfield operations, airside services, firefighters, operations officers and passenger service agents.

Unite regional officer Wullie Wallace said: “Unite remains open to further discussions with a view to resolving the dispute.”
