Heathrow baggage handlers' strike called off after new pay offer

A planned strike by baggage handlers and check-in staff at Heathrow airport has been suspended after a new pay offer.

Members of Unite employed by GH London (formerly Azzurra) were due to walk out on Friday.

The union said 300 of its members at Heathrow's Terminals 2 and 4 will vote next week on the new offer.

Regional officer Kevin Hall said: "Following a new offer from the company, our members will be balloted on the deal next week.

"The details of the offer will not be revealed until our members have a chance to vote on it.

"As a result, the strike action planned for tomorrow has been suspended and our members will be working normally."
