“I guess it may seem strange to celebrate a day of strike action by workers providing a lifeline service, but in the case of the HIAL air traffic controllers I think that I am justified.”
“I urge both sides to get back round the table for talks to develop a solution that best addresses the aspirations of both union members and HIAL management.” Emma Roddick MSP SNP
Prospect members working in air traffic control for Highlands and Islands Airports Limited (HIAL) are to stage a one day strike on 29 July over plans to centralise air traffic control in Inverness.
Industrial action is planned for the middle of May, which could result in a significant shock to oil processing and supplies.
If the air traffic controllers approve of this then a short strike would start on 4th of January 2021.
Members of Unite the union at Sullom Voe Terminal, Shetland have voted for strike action by 94%.
Leaders of Unite the union have confirmed that the strike action scheduled for Aberdeen Airport on Friday June 28th is called off.
Unite have called off the strike action set for tomorrow, June 27th at Aberdeen Airport.
Strike action will now go ahead at Aberdeen Airport on 27th and 28th of June starting at 6am and continuing until 10 am.
The ballot opens today, the 12th of June and closes on the 28th of June.
