Nine Belfast airport security workers dismissed for strike action.
Security firm ICT Security dismissed nine security workers at Belfast International Airport yesterday (22 May) after they took part in strike action over pay and conditions.
Strike action was started several weeks ago in a dispute over pay, overtime rates and sick pay, but was suspended when talks with the employer were set up at the Labour Relations Agency in Belfast on 9 and 10 May.
The company, which stated that the latest strike action was illegal, suspended 22 of the 42 employees involved in the strike and dismissed a total of nine employees. ICT Security is reportedly continuing disciplinary proceedings and it is believed that further employees may lose their jobs, reported PA News.
