Union calls off border strikes

UNION bosses have called off today’s planned strike action among UK Border Agency workers, which would have disrupted the busiest day in Heathrow’s history.

The PCS union said it has secured 1,000 border jobs as part of a deal it cut with the government to avoid a walkout on the eve of the Olympics.

The Home Office was yesterday preparing to apply for an injunction to halt the strike when the PCS announced the deal.

Further industrial action is suspended while talks continue.
