Strike action by over 150 Birmingham airport security officers and terminal technicians has been suspended following an improved pay offer by their employer Birmingham Airport Limited (HAL).

All-out indefinite strike action, which was due to begin tomorrow (18 July), has been suspended as an act of goodwill to allow Unite’s members to be balloted on the new offer.

Unite regional officer Sulinder Singh said: “Unite’s members have agreed to suspend strike action while they are balloted on the new offer. We will be making no further comment until the result of the ballot is announced.”

If the offer is rejected, then indefinite strike action will begin on Tuesday 1 August.
