A spokeswoman for airports operator BAA said:
– Spokeswoman for BAA
We welcome the decision by the PCS to call off tomorrow's strike.So far passengers arriving for the Olympics have had a smooth journey through Heathrow and it is great news that those arriving tomorrow can also expect a warm welcome to London and the Games.
Mark Serwotka from the PCS has criticised the reaction to staff over the proposed industrial action
– Mark Serwotka, PCS General Secretary
To have civil servants have their patriotism questioned by failed politicians like Jeremy Hunt is unacceptable. I understand the reaction the Government was able to whip up.
But we are happy to say this action has been called off.
