Glasgow and Aberdeen airport strikes: Thousands face flight disruption

Unite regional industrial officer Shauna Wright said: “Unite members at Aberdeen Airport will join those at Glasgow Airport taking industrial action to fight against this co-ordinated attack by AGS on our members pension scheme.

“We have repeatedly warned AGS that if they do not keep to the agreements they made with us then industrial action would be inevitable.

Unite then entered negotiations with airport operators AGS through conciliatory service ACAS, which led to the initial postponement of industrial action based on an improved pay offer of three per cent and a commitment to continue negotiations over the pension scheme proposals until May 31.

“Lets not forget that this attack comes despite Aberdeen Airport having enjoyed a near doubling of their profits.

“Industrial action is now set for June and further dates will be forthcoming, causing widespread disruption during the summer period due to the broken promises of AGS.”

Officials from the Unite trade union today confirmed its members will stage a walkout on Friday, June 7, and Monday, June 10, between the hours of 4am and 4pm.

Unite regional industrial officer Pat McIlvogue said: “The company are insistent upon abolishing a scheme they agreed to only three years ago while the boardroom enjoys pre-tax profits of £91 million.

WORKERS at Glasgow Airport are to take industrial action on two days next month as part of a dispute over pensions and pay.

“Industrial action is now set for the summer period and the blame for that lies fully with Glasgow Airport.”

Staff at Glasgow Airport are due to take industrial action next month as part of a dispute over pensions and pay.

Officials from the Unite trade union today confirmed its members will stage a walkout on Friday, June 7, and Monday, June 10, between the hours of 4am and 4pm.

At the beginning of April, Unite members voted in favour of industrial action over a pay claim for 2019 and proposals by airport bosses to close their final salary pension scheme.
