Brisbane Airport Corporation has released a statement regarding the industrial action that security officers and the United Workers Union will be undertaking at Brisbane and Gold Coast Airports on Monday 19 December.

Similar action is expected at Canberra Airport on Friday 16 December.

A spokesperson for the Brisbane Airport Corporation said, “We do hope the security company, and its workforce is able to reach a fair outcome in this wage negotiation.”

The industrial action is scheduled to take place in the middle of the holiday period.

“We’d have to question whether a full workforce stoppage at several of Australia’s key airports at peak holiday time is proportionate action for a wage negotiation, notwithstanding the merits or otherwise of the union’s claim,” the spokesperson said.

“Tens of thousands of travellers will be impacted if the action takes place.

“We hope that the union and ISS security can reach a fair and reasonable outcome in a time that allows Australians to have the Christmas holiday they deserve, and to reconnect with their family and friends.”

Brisbane Airport Corporation said it would also like to acknowledge the important role ISS security officers play in maintaining safety at our airport, and thank them for the commitment they display to travellers and visitors to the terminals, the spokesperson said.
