Air Traffic Control Industrial Action – Update 9 August 2019

Following talks with Prospect on Tuesday 6th August, HIAL submitted a further offer that augmented our previous proposal. We submitted this revised offer in a bid to resolve the current industrial dispute.

Prospect has agreed to ballot air traffic control officers (ATCOs) on our revised offer and has confirmed that no further strike action will be announced during the ballot period. Prospect has yet to confirm the timescales for the ballot.

Whilst we are pleased that there will be no further strike action during the consultation period, it is extremely disappointing that the current work to rule remains in place.

We once again apologise to our passengers, customers and people within our communities for any disruption during the ongoing industrial action.
