Airport strike at London-Heathrow

Border force staff mobilized for four days

The strike of border force officers working at London Heathrow airport in the UK will continue until Thursday 2 May. Arms folder for more than 300 employees working in terminals T2, T3, T4 and T5. The mobilization was proclaimed to ask for a halt to job cuts. The greatest inconveniences are recorded on arrivals air connections, with hundreds of flights delayed.

"Our workers are angry and disappointed that they were forced to walk off the job". "While not everyone will be affected, the changes will disproportionately affect those who have disabilities or who have caring responsibilities", explained Fran Heathcote, general secretary of the Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union. From the Ministry of the Interior they assure that they are "open to discussing a resolution".

The strike began yesterday, Monday 29 April 2024, and will last four days. A real wall erected by the unions, which are demanding protection for the staff of the busiest airport in the United Kingdom: around 250 border police employees will lose their jobs at passport control, according to the new shift planning.
