Socialist Party Scotland

Unite union members at Glasgow Airport are to strike for 24 hours from 4am on 16 April to 4am on 17 April. Hundreds of airport workers voted 95% for industrial action, on a 75% turnout.

There is further action planned over the spring and summer. Socialist Party Scotland gives full solidarity and support.

Correctly there is a programme of strike action and an overtime ban up until October to respond to massive attacks by bosses at owner AGS Airports.

A paltry 1.8% pay 'rise' offer, really representing a cut, is combined with the closure of the final-salary pension scheme.

Workers at Aberdeen Airport, also owned by AGS, are being balloted over attacks on pensions and pay. Unite should coordinate the action, and look at involving AGS workers at Southampton Airport.

AGS bosses clearly want a 'race to the bottom' in pay and conditions. We fight for a socialist alternative, where the top 150 companies and banks, along with key infrastructure such as aviation, are brought into public ownership under democratic management by the working class...
