Heathrow Airport strike risks Easter holiday chaos

Monday, 20 Mar, 2023 1

An airport strike at Heathrow is looming, potentially ruining Easter holidays.

Security officers will strike over Easter in their pay dispute.

Union Unite said over 1,400 will strike for 10 days starting from 31 March.

It involves security personnel based at Heathrow’s Terminal 5.

“Our members are simply unable to make ends meet due to the low wages paid by Heathrow,” Unite general secretary, Sharon Graham said.

Heathrow management says it has plans to mitigate the disruption

“Passengers can be reassured that we have contingency plans which will keep the airport open and operational.”

The airport says it has offered a 10% increase in pay.

In addition to the airport strike, more than 1,000 Passport Office workers are due to strike throughout April.

The PCS union said this strike action will likely to have a ‘significant impact’ on new passport deliveries.
