Eurostar security guards call off strikes amid pay talks

Planned strikes by security guards on Eurostar this week have been called off.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union employed by contractor Mitie were due to walk out on Friday and Sunday in a dispute over pay.

Talks on pay are continuing, and further strikes next week will go ahead if the dispute is not resolved.

Mitie said it has contingency plans if the action proceeds.

An RMT spokesperson said: “The union suspended scheduled strikes this week to allow Mitie security members to take part in a referendum on the latest company offer which will be concluded on December 19. Strikes for December 22 and 23 next week remain on at the present time.”

Eurostar pointed out that none of its staff were involved in the dispute. The workers involved are Mitie security staff at Eurostar’s London St Pancras terminal.
