Strike threat to Gatwick, Heathrow and Manchester airports

Unite the union is calling on ground-handling company dnata to enter into talks to avoid a two-day strike next week at Heathrow, Manchester and Gatwick airports.

The call comes after a ballot of union members saw 83% vote in favour of strike action.

More than 460 members, based mainly at Heathrow, could strike for two days from Tuesday 23 December if dnata fails to negotiate a pay offer, which sees supervisors get a 4.5 percent increase, twice the amount other staff have been offered (2.25%)

dnata is one of Heathrow’s largest ground handlers at Heathrow, Manchester and Gatwick airports, employing check-in staff, aircraft push back drivers, loaders and HGV drivers.
