Potential strike at Heathrow in Dec ⦁ 希斯路機場打算12月罷工4日
Hong Kongers travelling between Hong Kong and the UK in December:Heathrow workers, including firefighters and baggage handlers, are planning a four-day strike in December in protest at wage cuts. Heathrow says it will keep operating despite the walk-out by workers, according to the BBC.
Strikes are not unusual in the UK. The Unite union says Heathrow has enough cash to survive the COVID downturn without needing to enforce pay cuts of 15-20%, which will affect about half of the 4,700 staff in engineering, air-side operations and security.
