Workers at Aberdeen Airport have rejected the latest pay offer by the management by 62.8% on a ballot of 96% Unite members. They have also rejected the pension proposal by 71.5%.
Strike action will now go ahead at Aberdeen Airport on 27th and 28th of June starting at 6am and continuing until 10 am.
Shauna Wright, Unite regional industrial officer, said:
“Unite took the latest pay offer back to our membership at Aberdeen Airport to let them decide on the course of action. It was vital that our members had the opportunity to consider and respond to Aberdeen Airport and the AGS Group.
“The message our members have sent could not be any clearer or any louder.”
“Let’s hope this second strong mandate shows Aberdeen Airport management that they need to come back around the table with an offer Unite can support so that we can find a remedy to this dispute.
“Unite’s members have democratically voted to continue strike action and this action will continue unless they receive a significantly better offer. We will wait to hear from airport management on whether they wish to get back round the negotiating table or whether they are more interested in needlessly escalating this dispute.”
