Airport closure threat lifted

BAA LTD has offered their ground staff a 2% pay increase plus a one-off payment following discussions last Monday.  The Unite union has recommended this offer.  It had threatened to close Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heathrow, Southampton and Stansted airports over the looming Bank Holiday period (see www.aerbt.co.uk/#2368).  The deal, which includes a minimum one-off £500 (US$781) payment is an increase on BAA's previous offer of a 1% rise.  "The negotiations were tough but Unite has delivered a fair offer for BAA staff," Unite national officers Brian Boyd and Brendan Gold said in a statement. www.baa.com
