Workers in the RMT union at Heathrow Express struck for two days last week against bosses’ multi-million pound package of cuts. It led to the closure of the prestigious Terminal Five transport hub.
Some 200 workers are under threat of redundancy while those who remain face a ten-year pay freeze.
After the strikes were announced bosses stopped all mutual shift swaps.
This had a serious effect on workers’ lives, especially those with care responsibilities.
Cleaners on London Underground working for ISS were sent home last week for refusing to use biometic fingerprint technology to book in for shifts.
The RMT union made sure they were paid for the day. Talks were going ahead as Socialist Worker went to press.
