UK: Glasgow Airport: industrial action on June 7 and June 10

WORKERS at Glasgow Airport are to take industrial action on two days 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.

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.
