Stansted Airport security scanner employees plan September strike action

Operators of the security scanners for checked-in luggage at London Stansted Airport are set to strike for two days in September in a dispute over pay with private contractor Mitie Group.

The dispute involves 30 operators who are also GMB Union members who requested an increase in pay of 3% from Mitie, but voted in favor of strike action after receiving a proposed increase of only 1.5%. The strikes have been planned for September 12, from 03:45am to 23:59pm, and on September 13, from 03:45am to 13:00pm. The 30 union members have already taken strike action on August 23 and August 31, 2015.

Gary Pearce, GMB organizer, said, “GMB remains available for talks with Mitie at anytime and anywhere at a moment’s notice. We remain in contact with ACAS, which has been trying to get Mitie to meet them about resolving the dispute.

“GMB members involved in the dispute remain determined to get a pay rise irrespective of how long it takes Mitie to get to the table and sort this out.”
