UK: Heathrow Airport demands workers to take pay cut or face dismissal

15th April 2020 / NewsBits
  • London Heathrow, the UK’s busiest airport, is forcing its workers to take a 15 per cent pay cut or face dismissal over the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • In a letter seen by Sky News, Heathrow’s “Chief People Officer,” Paula Stannett, told thousands of workers that they must accept a supposedly “voluntary” reduction in pay in order to bolster the airport’s flagging profits. If they refuse, they will lose their jobs.
  • Stannett’s memo threateningly states: “We are looking for everyone to play their part and are not expecting anyone to opt out, other than those who are leaving us very shortly through redundancy.
  • “There will be consequences if colleagues do not accept the revised terms as it will mean that we have to make further job cuts.
