Glasgow Airport workers secure improved pay deal

Thursday, 01 Jun, 2023 0

A potential Glasgow Airport strike has been averted with a new pay deal agreed.

ICTS Search security workers at Glasgow Airport voted to accept the new offer.

Around 250 workers will now receive a phased increase worth up to 11%.

This will uplift hourly pay to £12.77 in August compared with last year’s rate of £11.50.

Hourly pay has increased by 34% over two years.

Union Unite said the pay offer was backed by 78% of members on a 97% turnout.

The Central Search workers deal with passengers directly in the security search area and process them for flights.

They also cover mobile patrols, control access posts, and screen all deliveries at Glasgow Airport.

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “Unite has secured another significant wage deal at Glasgow Airport, which has been emphatically backed.”

Around 250 ICTS Search workers will now have their basic pay increased by up to 11% over the course of this year.”

In May Unite said members based at Glasgow Airport could be balloted on possible strike action without an improved offer.
