UK airport workers threaten to walkout over pay

Air
baggage handlers and check-in staff across the UK are threatening to strike
over pay.

The
GMB union said its 1,000 members at Aviance plan to walkout in late June unless
the company returns to the negotiating table.

Aviance
has offered staff an increase of 2.5 per cent.

Aviance
operates at 17 airports – Aberdeen, Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, Coventry,
Edinburgh, Gatwick, Glasgow, Heathrow, Jersey, Leeds-Bradford, Liverpool, Luton
Manchester, Stansted, Southampton and Teesside.
