Air strike suspended

Heathrow workers vote on improved pay offer
Alex Flynn, Monday, August 5th, 2019

A strike by more than 4,000 workers at Heathrow due to start tomorrow at 00:01 and finish at 23:59 has been suspended while the workforce votes on an improved pay offer, Unite said today (5 August).


Unite said it would not be revealing the details of the improved offer until its members involved in the ongoing pay dispute have had an opportunity to consider and vote on the new package.


The improved offer was made following talks under the chairmanship of the conciliation service Acas involving senior directors from Heathrow Airport and senior Unite officials today.


The talks came after strike action today was also suspended after intensive negotiations throughout the weekend.


The strikes already announced for Friday 23 August and Saturday 24 August remain on the table until the result of the ballot was known.


Unite will not be commenting further until its members have considered the improved offer.
