Heathrow Airport security personnel will strike every weekend during summer

Heathrow Airport security personnel (more than 2000 staff) have announced that they will strike every weekend during the summer. The strikes, which will begin on June 24 and run through August 27, are in protest of low pay and poor working conditions.


The Unite union, which represents the security staff, said that the strikes were a last resort after months of negotiations with Heathrow management had failed to reach an agreement. The union is demanding a pay increase of 10% and a reduction in the number of hours worked.


Heathrow Airport has said that it is disappointed by the decision to strike and that it is working to minimize the impact on passengers. However, the airport has warned that there could be long delays and cancellations at the airport during the strike period.

The workers will strike on:

• June 24, 25, 28, 29 and 30

• July 14-16, 21-24, and 28-31

• August 4-7, 11-14, 18-20 and 24-27


The strikes are the latest in a series of labor disputes at Heathrow Airport. In March, baggage handlers went on strike for two days, causing widespread disruption. The strikes have raised concerns about the ability of Heathrow Airport to cope with the demands of the summer travel season. The strikes are likely to have a significant impact on passengers flying from Heathrow Airport during the summer. Passengers should expect long delays and cancellations, and they should be prepared to arrive at the airport early. Heathrow Airport has advised passengers to check their flight status before traveling and to allow plenty of time to get to the airport. Passengers should also be prepared to bring their own food and drinks, as restaurants and shops at the airport may be closed during the strikes.
