STRIKES at Gatwick have been called off after airport workers accepted a ten per cent pay rise.
Gatwick Ground Services staff, contracted by British Airways, were set to walk out tomorrow for four days until Tuesday.
The GGS workers voted to accept an improved offer of 10.3 per cent, the Unite union said.
Unite secretary Sharon Graham said: “This is a significant pay increase.
“Members have been solid in their determination to secure a fair increase, which has resulted in a just settlement.”
Earlier action due to involve staff at DHL Ground Handling, ASC and Menzies was also called off.
But other strikes could take place in the weeks ahead.
Staff at Red Handling, Wilson James and DHL Gatwick Direct have voted for action, and Unite warned of “substantial disruption”
