I don;t think this will cause any disruption as I think they are the people that fix things in the Terminals. Someone correct me if I am wrong.
And seeing the state of some of the terminals it would make no difference if they are on strike or not!!!

The BBC news report says
Quote: responsible for vital services such as maintaining and repairing aircraft tow trucks and passenger ramps.
Although it is reported that there will be "minimum disruption" for passengers if Emcor employees do strike, it would be the end of a summer that has been relatively strike-free by LHR/ LGW standards.

... sounds 'harmless' enough, until you recall that when the staff at a private catering company went on strike at
LHR a couple of years ago, some key BA staff came out in sympathy, causing total chaos! I'm not going to get into that particular dispute, but just wanted to point out that unions such as GMB have a lot of members all over the airport, and it's not unheard of for sypmathy action to occur...
Guess we'll find out on the day!
