The ATCOs’ Branch, part of the Transport section of Prospect, represents Air Traffic Control Professionals working in the United Kingdom. Although the majority of its members are employees of NATS, an increasing number are employed by other ATS providers. ATCOs’ Branch members are not only Air Traffic Controllers but also other ATC specialists such as FISOs, Watch Managers, Training Managers and many other key roles
Air Traffic Management throughout the world is facing many challenges, including the deregulation of EU airspace and the introduction of new Air Navigation Service Providors which in some cases can result in our members working for new employers. Prospect understands the difficulties that such changes can present , and is able to provide effective, professional and considered representation both in the UK and internationally through our affiliations with the European Transport Workers Federation and International Workers Federation. Prospect has years of experience in protecting and advancing members’ interests in a fast changing world. Prospect is THE union for you.
