Dundee Airport could grind to a halt if planned strike action over “unfair” pay goes ahead in a few months’ time.
Air traffic controllers employed by Highlands and Islands Airport Ltd (HIAL) will soon be balloted on industrial action by the union Prospect, which claims those doing the same jobs in London are paid double.
Prospect negotiation officer David Avery said: “It is unfair that a HIAL air traffic controller, providing an essential service for the Highlands and Islands, is being paid half as much their counterpart in London.”
A Scottish Government spokesman said: “HIAL has implemented a pay rise for all staff, which is a significant improvement on previous years, as well as significantly increasing their contribution to their pension scheme in order to maintain this benefit for employees.
“Staff also continue to receive generous annual leave, sick pay and other allowances.”
