Stansted Scanners To Strike

Workers who operate the luggage security scanners at Stansted Airport are going to stage two strikes in a row over pay.

Members of the GMB union plan to walk out on Sunday August 23 and on Bank Holiday Monday August 31.

The strike action will take place from 3.45am to 1.00 pm on the Sunday and from 3.45am to 11.59pm on the Bank Holiday.

The workers, who are employed by private contractor Mitie, voted by 87%, in a turnout of 80%, to strike in support of their claim for a 3% pay rise.

Around 30 workers are involved in the dispute. They have rejected a 1.5% offer from the company.
