Britain’s airports are warning travelers they could face major delays today when civil servants and teachers plan to take part in a nationwide strike.
BAA, which runs Heathrow, Stansted, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Southampton airports, made the statement Wednesday.
Nearly three quarters of a million teachers and civil servants are planning to walk off the job Thursday due to a dispute over pensions. Four trade unions voted to strike today.
Prime Minister David Cameron made a final plea Tuesday to persuade the workers to abandon the strike.
