The Gibair pay dispute has been resolved after Unite the union and Bland Group established an agreement with Gibair employees. This means there will be no further industrial action at the airport, with operations returning to normal.
In a joint statement, Unite and Bland Group said Gibair employees will receive an increase in basic pay and employer pension contributions. They added Bland will also conduct a review of specific roles over coming weeks, in close collaboration with Unite.
The statement also specifies that Bland was able to release the additional funding by reallocating resources internally, meaning no additional funding will be provided by the Government.
