Dundee workers vote for industrial action


Airport workers vote to strike over pay harmonisation

Prospect says members at Dundee airport have voted unaminously in favour of taking industrial action over a 2011 pay offer and harmonisation with colleagues at other Scottish airports.

The ballot result includes both industrial action and action short of a strike. Thirty-one ballot papers were issued and 30 returned. On each question members voted 30 in favour of action.

Prospect members at Dundee airport include fire-fighters, air traffic control and aircraft fuelling staff.

National secretary Alan Denney said: “The company has been informed of the ballot result and Prospect will be consulting with members on Wednesday (April 18) to determine what kind of industrial action members will take and when.”
