BAA firefighters vote to accept pay offer

Four
thousand firefighters, security and ground staff at the seven BAA airports have
voted to accept a revised pay offer of just under 8 per cent.

Bill
Morris, Transport and General Workers’ Union general secretary, said the deal
recognises the additional responsibilities, workload and stress which T&G
members have taken on in the wake of September 11.

"In
spite of the difficulties we have had over this particular pay round,
industrial relations are basically good at BAA. With this deal agreed, we look
forward to working with BAA as aviation enters a new era of growth and
vitality," said Morris.

The
deal will now apply to all staff directly employed at BAA airports and be
backdated to April 2002.
