Planned strike at Heathrow Airport suspended as union votes

Officials at London s Heathrow Airport say a planned strike has been suspended after the union representing security guards, firefighters and other workers gave its members time to consider the company s offer. Unite union members at Europe s busiest airport planned to strike Aug. 23-24 in an ongoing pay dispute. The airport said Wednesday the new offer gives a total pay rise of 7.8 per cent over two years. Heathrow says the raise is higher than any other UK airport and that it has a duty to ensure the business is sustainable particularly against the backdrop of increasing economic uncertainty facing the UK in the immediate future. The Unite union has confirmed a ballot is underway on the revised pay offer for 4,000 security, airside operations and passenger services staff. It closes September 2.
