New Heathrow strikes?
As well as the ongoing Border Force strikes, another group of workers are balloting for strike action at Heathrow. Heathrow security guards, engineers and firefighters are being asked to vote on whether they want to take strike action.
The 3,000 members of Unite union have rejected a 10% pay increase saying that it is not level with inflation.
Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “Heathrow Airport is guilty of gross hypocrisy, it is paying telephone number salaries to its chief executive and senior managers, but the workers who make the company a success are on poverty wages.
“Unite never takes a backward step when fighting for its members’, jobs, pay and conditions and our members at Heathrow Airport will receive the union’s complete support.”
If the members vote for strike action, it could well hit the airport during the Easter holidays as the ballot is due to end on Friday 17 March. The union must give a fortnight’s notice of any strike action meaning the first available date would be the weekend before Easter.
