Union bargaining to settle RMT concerns?
Members of RMT have called a strike over the decision to scrap Heathrow Connect.
Union bargaining is required after industrial action was called by RMT over a pay row with the Heathrow Express.
The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers will take part in a 24-hour strike from 09:15 on June 26th 2011.
It comes after members took to the picket line for 48 hours in May after the announcement of the total closure of Heathrow Connect.
RMT general secretary Bob Crow accused Heathrow Express of "sticking their heads in the sand" over the issue.
He called on the group - which runs a transport service from central London to Heathrow Airport - to enter in to strike negotiations.
"RMT is ready to negotiate seriously to put in place a fair pay package that ... recognises the contribution [of] our members," Mr Crow added.
Failure to reach a resolution could see more workers take to the picket line as they look to get a better deal for themselves.
