Workers at Glasgow Airport agreed on a pay rise.

Unite members have secured two new wage deals for around 80 people employed at the airport.

Over 20 tanker drivers employed by North Air, who supply fuel to Glasgow Airport backed a deal which raises earnings by 7.8%.

This equates to their annual income increasing by around £2,700.

North Air provides refuelling services for domestic and international airlines that fly into and out of Glasgow Airport.

Around 60 cleaners employed by ABM have also agreed to a two-year deal which in the first year lifts the basic hourly pay by 11.1%.

The deal involves other enhancements, including those who work the nightshift benefiting from having their shift rate rising by 12.3% this year. 

Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “Glasgow Airport is a runaway success for Unite.

"We are securing significant pay increases for our membership right across the board. Unite is completely focused on delivering better jobs, pay and conditions for our members, and Glasgow Airport is a great example of this.”
