No strike in Heathrow this weekend, August walkout still in place

Published on : Wednesday, July 24, 2019

 

The walkout called by Unite this Friday  and Saturday has been called off which was aimed at shutting down Heathrow’s, Europe’s busiest airport during the one of the busiest weekends.

 

Around 4,000 workers including the security staff, engineers and drivers were to take part in the strike as the workforce votes on a new pay offer.

 

 

The details of the offer will not be revealed until the members involved in the pay dispute were to consider and vote on the new package.

 

 

However, until the result of the ballot is known Unite stated that the strikes announced for Monday 5 August and Tuesday 6 August, and Friday 23 August and Saturday 24 August remain on the table.

 

According to Union , it will not be commenting further until the ballot result is declared. The summer travel chaos was high at the Heathrow airport which could potentially shut down the airport.

 

 

There was a contingency plan to ensure the airport remains open and operates safely. The British Airways pilots have voted overwhelmingly to strike and the earliest stoppage could begin on August 13.
