Stansted workers head to Acas

Baggage-scanning workers at Stansted Airport are heading to dispute resolution with Acas tomorrow in an attempt to avert planned strike action over the August bank holiday. Around 40 staff, who are employed by outsourcing group Mitie and represented by the GMB union, called the strike on Monday over a backdated pay cut imposed in June. They plan to walk out for three hours, twice a day, over the long weekend.
