Heathrow Airport cancels 172 flights

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Heathrow Airport will cancel 172 flights on Monday and Tuesday after thousands of workers overwhelmingly rejected a revised pay offer.

Unite said 88% of its 4,000 union members – who include security guards, firefighters and engineers – voted to refuse the deal, meaning the parties will head to last-ditch pay dispute talks to avert a strike.

A two-day strike is set to start on Monday with further industrial action planned for 48 hours from 23 August.
