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.
