Solidarity walkout for sacked Heathrow Gate Gourmet workers
by Charlie Kimber
At the moment check-in staff, baggage handlers and bus drivers are on strike at Terminals 1 and 4.
Some 20 incoming flights have been re-routed away from Heathrow and outgoing flights halted.
At the heart of this dispute is a company determined to unilaterally slash pay, worsen conditions and bust unions—and the determination of British Airways to stand alongside it.
Dutch NOS TV, reporting on the strike, interviewed passengers whose plans were disturbed (without bringing up the possibility that bosses’ union busting caused their problems).
