Aberdeen Airport workers vote for pay strike

Unite members working at Aberdeen Airport have voted for strike action after rejecting a below-inflation pay offer.

Some 170 workers at the airport, including security and airfield operations, airside services, firefighters, operations officers and passenger service agents, will walk out on July 20, August 2 and 16.

Unite regional officer Wullie Wallace said: “Aberdeen International Airport’s latest derisory pay offer has been emphatically rejected by Unite members. The workforce for several years now has received below inflation increases and the company’s idea of rewarding its hard working employees is by offering more real terms pay cuts.

“Aberdeen Airport has been investing heavily into improving the airport facilities and amenities. It’s high time for the company to invest in its employees. Unite remains open to further discussions with a view to resolving the dispute.”

AGS Airports is a partnership between Ferrovial and Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA), established in 2014, to acquire Aberdeen, Glasgow and Southampton airports.
