Workers at London Gatwick Airport have called off strikes due to begin tomorrow after agreeing a new pay deal.

Some 1,000 employees, including baggage handlers and check-in staff, had planned a total of eight days of industrial action.

The first of the planned strikes, due to start last Friday, were called off after a breakthrough in talks and the remaining four days’ of industrial action, due to start on 4 August, were cancelled after staff at Gatwick Ground Services, who work for British Airways, agreed a 10.3% pay rise.

However, workers at other Gatwick firms, including Red Handling, Wilson James and DHL Gatwick Direct, are still threatening to strike for more pay, threatening ‘substantial disruption’.
