A total of 80 workers, including firefighters, bird control staff, engineers and drivers at Liverpool John Lennon Airport will be striking from Thursday 23rd August to Saturday 25th August in a dispute over pay.
Members of the GMB union rejected the 2% pay rise that was offered to them by the airport and have said the strike will only be suspended if they are offered a 3.6% pay increase. The GMB do not feel the airport has invested enough in their employees and they have been taken for granted.
This strike action will be followed by a 12-hour strike on Monday 3rd September.
The airport claims that passengers will not be affected by the strike. If you are due to travel to or from Liverpool John Lennon Airport during the strike action, please check for updates.
