Highlands airport strikes could impact Christmas travel
Travellers have been warned of possible disruption with airport strikes across the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.
Members of Unite voted by 73.5% to strike and by 92.8% of taking action short of strikes
They are seeking higher pay amid a cost of living crisis.
It would impact eleven airports in the HIAL group, for fire and rescue, security and administration workers.
The airports include Barra, Benbecula, Campbeltown, Dundee, Inverness, Islay, Kirkwall, Stornoway, Sumburgh, Tiree and Wick.
They will confirm industrial action dates this week.
Unite warns airport strikes would cause major disruption.
Sharon Graham, Unite general secretary, said: “Airport workers across Highland and Island communities simply can’t afford to live on their current wages.”
HIAL is a private company wholly-owned by the Scottish Government.
