UK Worker Strikes At Heathrow Airport To Escalate Further Over Pay Dispute

Unite General Secretary has advised people to expect disruptions throughout the summer.



Mayhem is expected at Heathrow Airport in May following the strike by the security staff.

Mayhem is expected at Heathrow Airport in May following the strike by the security staff. Interestingly, the strikes will continue for eight days during peak days of coronation and busy family travel dates.



According to Unite’s announcement, the security staff at Heathrow Airport plans to go on strike for eight days in the next month because of disputes over their pay scales.

The strike of union members will take place on 4, 5, 6, 9, 10, 25, 26, and 27th of May.

Unite claims the strikes will lead to massive delays and disruptions for people coming to the UK for the King’s coronation.

Don’t forget nearly 1,400 security officers went on strike for 10 days during Easter over the same dispute.

Unite General Secretary Sharon Graham believes that the chief executive is only interested in boosting his earnings without giving his workers a raise. She further added that the pay dispute would only escalate as more workers are balloted, with strikes being executed throughout the entire summer.

On the other hand, a spokesperson for Heathrow stated that operations ran smoothly for the first 10 days of Unite’s recently failed industrial action, and it won’t change this time either.

The spokesperson said that Unite would not be able to cause disruptions for visitors to the UK, especially during such an important time for the country.
