Silicone between kitchen floor tiles???

Has a tradesman retile a kitchen floor with underfloor heating for us.
He didn't ply board it out and laid heating pipes under tiles.
The grout after a few weeks began to crack and we could physically see the tiles move when stood on. He came back and re grouted. Same happen soon after. This time he has re grouted with silicone. Is this feasible? Will it last? Thanks

No. Everything that is now being done is simply an attempt to appear as if something is being done. You're being fobbed off, the job was not done correctly, the tiles will always have movement/become loose so none of these bodges will last
