Responding to reports that Highlands and Islands Airports Limited and Prospect have reached a resolution in the long running pay dispute, Scottish Greens Transport Spokesperson John Finnie MSP said:
“HIAL’s air traffic controllers play a vital role, allowing lifeline flights to service remote, rural and island communities throughout the Highlands and Islands. My constituents will be relieved, as I am, that this long running dispute has finally been resolved.
“The unique role performed by these skilled workers hasn’t always been appreciated by Ministers in Edinburgh or officials in Inverness. I hope that will now change.
“Prospect deserves enormous credit for holding out for a fair deal for its members.”
