Highland air staff suspend industrial action
ALL industrial action linked to the pay dispute by Highland air traffic controllers has been suspended as talks with management continue.
The Prospect union previously announced that a second one-day strike by members planned for Wednesday had been suspended.
This was after a previous strike that brought Highland airports including Inverness, to a standstill.
With an improved pay offer now on the table employers Highlands and Island Airports Litd (Hial) have welcomed the additional suspension of work to rule arrangements.
Managing director Inglis Lyon said a “productive” meeting with the union had led to confirmation of the suspension of industrial action “pending the outcome of the ballot on our revised offer.”
Highlands and Islands MSP Edward Mountain said he hoped the new pay offer would lead to a “satisfactory conclusion” to the dispute.
