British Airways faces more strike action

British Airways faces 20 days of strike action by cabin crew which will include a walk out during the next school half-term holidays.

The industrial action, planned by Unite Union will run on these dates: 18th-22th May, 24th-28th May, 30th May-3rd June and 5th-9th June. These may not be the limit of the strikes as Unite also plan to hold a further ballot for industrial action of cabin crew over BA’s conduct over the dispute.

BA plans to run all flights from Gatwick and London City Airport as well as a “sunstantial part” of its long haul network from Heathrow as well as services to all short haul destinations, however these will be confirmed in the next few days according to the BA website.

Unite’s joint general secretaries Derek Simpson and Tony Woodley said: “Passengers and investors alike will be dismayed that British Airways’ management rejected an approach by the union over the weekend, after their offer had been comprehensively turned down by their own employees.

“Cabin crew are left with no choice but to take further strike action. The seven days notice period is sufficient time for BA management to do the sensible thing and reopen meaningful negotiations.”
