United Kingdom Strikes – Baggage Handlers Heathrow Shelf Strike Plans – Companies

(Belga) Baggage handlers at London Heathrow, one of Europe’s busiest airports, will not be on strike this weekend. It was reported earlier.

The move is an initiative of the Unite trade union and will begin on Friday for three days. The union is seeking a 13 percent increase this year, while management has proposed only 4 percent and 6.5 percent next year. Late Thursday, Unite said “management has introduced an improved plan.” So the strike plans have been shelved. The next action is scheduled for December 29 to January 1 and will continue for now, pending a survey of ground staff, Unite says. In the United Kingdom, these days there are also strikes in other sectors such as the health sector, the postal service and the railways. Border police will be on strike over the holidays, which will also cause disruption at British ports and airports. (Belgium)
