AIR traffic controllers working for Highland and Islands Airports Limited (HIAL) have rejected the latest pay offer from the company.

No further strike action is planned at this time, but action short of a strike by members of the Prospect union continues.

Prospect negotiations officer David Avery said: “Our members have voted to reject the latest pay offer from HIAL.

“We will now consult with members on how best to move towards a resolution of this dispute and will also meet with the company to try to find an acceptable way forward.”

A spokesman for HIAL said: This is a disappointing result. We presented a fair and reasonable offer to the air traffic control staff.

“We have been in touch with Prospect and the union has agreed to meet in the near future and we are hopeful that these discussions will be positive”.
