British border control union has set a 24 hour strike date for May 10. This will affect Heathrow as well as Eurostar travels in Paris and Brussels.
If you are planning travel involving Great Britain, be prepared for long lines and waiting. This could be only the beginning of problems as Olympic travel, and Summer travel mounts.
Thanks for posting this Jerry. It may indeed help someone. Once on a trip, we were all set to take the Eurostar to Belgium and were rather disappointed when we arrived at the train station ready for our adventure only to discover that the "trains" were on strike. Forewarned is forearmed.
I remember being in Bermuda years ago and took the ferry across the island. The workers went on strike when we reached the other side of the island. Went back for the return trip on the ferry and, nope...ferry closed. Find some other way to get back! Now, not a big problem in Bermuda (another English colony) since it's a small island, but imagine the havoc it would create in a large country like England if the border entry points for ferries and high speed train were inoperable because of a strike!
A good source of travel information that I have completely forgotten about until today's thread on travel to South Africa is IJET. While they are a subscritpion service for business travelers they do provide some public domain info for free.
Here is what they have to say about London travel for the upcoming Olympic games.
