Air Traffic Control Dispute Resolved

We are pleased to advise that the Air Traffic Control (ATC) pay dispute has now been resolved. Prospect has confirmed today (Friday 3rd January) that, following a ballot of their membership, there was an overwhelming acceptance of our revised pay offer.

Acceptance of this offer sees air traffic controllers receiving the 2019/20 pay increase already awarded to other HIAL staff, along with a commitment to a similar award in 2020/21, assuming that Scottish Government’s pay policy remains broadly the same. In addition, they will receive a retention payment for a three-year period.

This now draws the ATC industrial action to a close and we look forward to working with our air traffic control staff as we strive to maintain and develop sustainable airport services for the future.
