It would not be appropriate to comment on individual discussions. The Department for Transport has kept an open dialogue with Unions representing the aviation sector including GMB, through regular structured engagement at both Ministerial and official levels.

Additionally, Unions are represented in the membership of the Expert Steering Group, the industry working group for the International Aviation Taskforce. Our transport systems are critical to support the restart of the wider economy, we continue to work closely with the aviation sector and those that support it, directly and through the work of the Taskforce, on these restart plans and the longer-term recovery of the sector.
