Gatwick airport staff call off strike
By Alan Jones, Press Association Industrial Correspondent
A planned strike by workers at Gatwick Airport who help passengers with disabilities has been called off after a new pay offer.
Members of Unite employed by logistics firm Wilson James were due to take action for 48 hours from Friday.
The union said workers will receive an additional £1 an hour as well as sick pay for those who do not currently receive it.
Workers are being urged to accept the deal in a ballot.
Unite regional officer Jamie Major said: "The hard-working staff who are dedicated to assisting passengers who require special assistance at Gatwick airport have been undervalued for far too long. This deal begins to address this."
