Prospect, the trade union representing the air traffic controllers at HIAL airports are to ballot their members about whether or not to accept the revised pay offer.
The ballot will go out with no recommendation from the union.
The ballot opens today, the 12th of June and closes on the 28th of June.
The industrial action which has been taking place has been suspended while the ballot is open. If the pay offer is rejected then action short of a strike will resume at 0001, 29th of June.
David Avery, Prospect negotiations officer, said
“The offer we have received from HIAL is sufficiently different to the original offer that we want to give members the chance to properly consider it and vote on whether to accept it.
“Prospect is not making a recommendation on whether to accept or reject the offer and so as to remain neutral we will not be making any further statement at this time.”
