Union calls off Tuesday's strike at Heathrow Airport

Strike action at Heathrow on Tuesday has been called off after the airport group and the union Unite reached a deal over pay. Workers had planned to walk out on both Monday and Tuesday in a row over wages. Strike action over the two days has now been averted but Heathrow said a walkout on 23 and 24 August is still scheduled to go ahead. Unite and Heathrow have reached an improved pay offer which will now be presented to its members. Fearing a strike on Tuesday, some airlines had cancelled flights - Heathrow has advised passengers to check whether those services will now go ahead. On Sunday evening, when the first day of industrial action was suspended for Monday, a number of airlines chose to reinstate flights. A spokesman for Heathrow said: "We regret that passengers have been inconvenienced by this and urge them to contact their airline for up to date information on the status of their service."
