Manchester UK Airport Workers Vote For Strike Action

Manchester UK Airport Workers Vote For Strike Action

Workers at Manchester Airport in the United Kingdom have voted to strike in protest at proposed job cuts, including those of security guards.
The union has mounted a campaign against cuts at the airport which it fears will compromise safety and plans by the airport's management to cut 140 security jobs from the current staff of 700.

The Transport and General Workers' Union, which organised the vote, said the move was to fight proposed redundancies and protect workers' terms and conditions.

A spokesman for the airport said that although contingency plans were in place to deal with any stoppages, the negotiating process had still to be exhausted.

Airport workers involved in the strike ballot include firemen, security guards, airfield marshallers, engineers and clerical staff.
