RMT members at Heathrow Express were set to strike again on Wednesday of this week for 24 hours from 3am.

It is the third wave of strikes since bosses announced a multi-million pound cuts package. 

Two hundred workers are under threat of redundancy while those who remain face a ten-year pay freeze.

Bosses also want train drivers to take on the role of evacuating passengers in an emergency so they can get rid of other onboard workers.

A planned 24-hour strike last Saturday by RMT members working for Rail Gourmet on East Midlands trains was suspended for talks. The dispute is over disciplinary procedures.
