Virgin Pilots Threaten to Strike
August 24th, 2010 by elisa

A sigh of relief came as BAA managed to halt a strike of staff at 6 of the largest UK airports last week, however now Virgin Airlines pilots are threatening to ballot for a strike as early as this week. A last attempt at talks for a resolution are currently being held.

The strike threat comes as the British Airline Pilots’ Association (Balpa) claim that Virgin is denying pilots their right to a minimum number of days off as previously agreed to by the two sides. The current right that pilots hold is to have 120 days off in addition to a normal holiday time  in return for frequently working at weekends and bank holidays.
