Heathrow workers suspend first round of planned strike action

More than 4,00 workers, ranging from security guards and engineers to passenger service teams, had been due to stage the first of three two-day walkouts on Friday and Saturday (26-27) in a dispute over pay.


However, the Unite union confirmed on Wednesday (24 July) the first round of strike action has been suspended to allow workers to vote on a new pay offer from Heathrow.


Unite has declined to reveal details of the offer until members have had a chance to consider and vote on the new pay package.


Strikes scheduled for 6-7 August and 23-24 August are still set to go ahead pending the result of the new ballot.
