An industrial dispute that led to a walkout by security staff at north airports is over.
Members of the Prospect union, representing security personnel at the 11 airports affected, have voted to accept an offer of improved contracts.
The deal “harmonises” their terms and conditions over the next 20 months, after a six-year campaign for equality.
Union members voted 95% in favour of the offer, on a turnout of 74%.
Scottish Government-owned Highlands and Islands Airports Ltd (Hial) tabled the offer after a period of work to rule following a 48-hour strike.
Prospect national secretary Alan Denney said: “I am delighted that this dispute has finally been settled and that our members will in future be on an equal footing with their colleagues in the wider Hial group.
“It is right that the vital task of keeping the public safe when they fly is properly recognised.”
He added: “I would like to thank members for their patience over six long years as well as the wider public for their support and understanding during the recent industrial action.”
The union had argued that since Hial had taken security in-house, it had failed to agree equal terms for basic pay, shift pay, sick pay, overtime, weekend premium payments and holidays for its airport security staff.
The union represents about 120 of the 160 workers covering Hial’s airports Barra, Benbecula, Campbeltown, Dundee, Inverness, Islay, Kirkwall, Stornoway, Sumburgh, Tiree and Wick.
A spokesman for Hial said: “We are pleased that Prospect members have accepted the package of improvements. Notwithstanding that disruption was minimal, today’s outcome is good news for staff and for passengers and means we can now focus on making this summer our busiest ever.”
