Heathrow Express 'forced to consider redundancies'

Job losses were the one thing our proposals avoided - but the RMT’s wrong-headed path of repeated strikes has added to our costs, forcing us to now consider redundancies.

From the outset we have warned the RMT that strikes are not the answer as they are increasing costs when we are trying to reduce them. They have ignored this advice.

The RMT leadership alone is responsible for putting its own members’ jobs at risk. We warned them. They ignored the warning. Now, entirely unnecessarily, their members’ futures are far less certain.

– Keith Greenfield, Heathrow Express Managing Director
