    TWU SA/NT Branch Office Media Release: Adelaide Airport Aviation Screeners Ballot Results 101 voted - 100% for Taking Protected Action

    Aviation Screeners at Adelaide Airport have balloted for the right to take protected industrial action because ISS Security Services Pty Ltd (ISS) have refused to negotiate a fair and decent agreement in line with award rates and pay rates across Australian airports. This overwhelming endorsement of industrial action sends a clear signal to management that the ISS workforce is united in their determination to achieve the rates of pay and the conditions which they deserve, according to Transport Workers’ Union (TWU) South Australia and Northern Territory Branch Secretary Ray Wyatt.
