Next week’s planned strike action by security staff at Leeds Bradford Airport has been suspended to give the union time to consult with members over an improved pay deal put forward by airport bosses today (18 August).
Workers at the airport were set to walk-out for three days following a dispute over pay - which saw a ballot return of 93% vote in favour of industrial action.
Joe Wheatley, GMB negotiator, said:
“Following a number of commitments put forward by Leeds Bradford bosses to improve pay, we now need to fully consult with our members working in security at the airport.
“The GMB strike committee has agreed to suspend next week’s planned strike action to give us the facility, time and space to consider the new, improved offer with our members.”
