The union also plans to take “action short of strike by not working any additional hours” between 03.00 on Saturday 3rd and 02.59 on Monday 5th March. Heathrow Express has published a revised timetable for this weekend, with services departing every 30 minutes.

Heathrow Express said: “We are disappointed the RMT Union has chosen to announce strike action against Heathrow Express. Heathrow Express apologises for any inconvenience to your journey and is committed to minimising any disruption.”
