Heathrow’s latest 24 hours strike

Immigration workers are London Heathrow Airport are threatening to strike on Thursday, as part of a wider strike by public sector workers. The strike is to protest a plan by the UK government to increase retirement age of arresting officers.

The level of participation in the strike may be low, however, and also there is still a chance it could be called off.

Heathrow’s immigration is under intense scrutiny at the moment, over long waiting times.
