Here's the only info I can find.. It's amazing you crazy Europeans can get anything done with these constant strikes.
Notice to passengers regarding possible strike action at BAA airports
23 November 2002
This information will be updated with any new information. Please note, you may need to refresh the page to ensure you see the latest information.
We understand the concerns of passengers regarding the threatened action by the TGWU and AMICUS.
BAA is doing all it can to resolve this situation before any strike action takes place. Talks between the TGWU, Amicus and BAA which have been taking place since Wednesday 20 November are still ongoing and are at a critical stage. BAA will continue to refine the contingency plans and will be able to confirm more on Monday.
If strikes go ahead, we cannot guarantee there will be no disruption on the dates selected by unions. However, we are developing specific arrangements aimed at operating services to our customers on strike days. It is difficult to provide definitive advice to passengers at this stage except to ask you to monitor the situation through the media and this website.
The dates selected by unions for strike action are:
28 November 2002
2 December 2002
10 December 2002
15 December 2002
23 December 2002
2 January 2003
Action is due to start from 0600 hours on each of these days for 24 hours.

My CX flight is due to get into Heathrow on the 10th at 0505. Does that mean that Heathrow workers will show up for about three hours before commencing their strike? That doesn't seem to make much sense, to me.

I wouldn't be surprised if all flights that are scheduled to depart after 06.00 despite arriving the previous evening/before 06.00 will find themselves going to another airport. Otherwise, airlines are going to have a pile of aircraft at the BAA airports that can't fly out except as empty positioning flights!
