Heathrow Express and Connect strike action over massive cuts to jobs and safety rock solid this morning as new terminal opens.

Mick Cash, RMT acting general secretary, said ,

"Despite an outrageous campaign of intimidation by Heathrow Express managers, RMT members are solidly supporting the action again this morning in a fight over cuts that would halve staffing numbers and decimate the safety regime on the Heathrow rail links.

"Instead of conning the public over the level of service that's running , and dressing up for ludicrous publicity stunts, the HEX management should be round the table with the union addressing the deadly serious issues at the heart of this dispute. "
