Following negotiations with
the Transport and General Workers’ Union (T&G), which represents some
United Airlines ground employee groups at London
Heathrow, United confirms that the carrier and the T&G have reached an
agreement on pay, and that the proposed strike action for Friday, August
27, has been called off. The T&G has agreed to recommend acceptance of United’s latest offer to its
members in a ballot to be held next week.
“United is pleased to have reached a mutual agreement, through active
negotiation with the T&G, that will ensure for our customers the
continued, smooth operation of our flights in and out of London Heathrow,”
said Larry De Shon, senior vice president - airport operations, United.
