The Trades Union Congress (TUC) has backed up airport workers protesting against ID cards, the Financial Times reports.

In a letter to Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, the TUC said it had "significant and substantive" concerns about ID cards, due to be rolled out to airport workers in 2009.

The TUC repeated claims made by the British Air Transport Association earlier this month that ID cards will not improve security procedures.

"Unions representing the airport workforce recognise the need for effective security measures but see no evidence that these proposals would enhance airport security arrangements," the TUC wrote in the letter seen by the FT.
