strikes planned

British Airways cabin crew have voted in favour of four more days of strike action in what is the latest in a long-running pay and benefits row.

The strike will start from the 16th of June and will run for 4 days, even though BA say that the crew’s pay and rewards are in line with competitors. Unite, the union which manage BA’s cabin crew said that the action is about benefits not being reinstated for crew which took part in earlier industrial action.

The huge IT failure that grounded British Airways’ flights across the UK and caused 75,000 passengers serious delays over a busy bank holiday weekend has proven to be a huge problem for BA.

Damaging their stellar reputation for customer service and wiping an eye-watering £170m off the share price of their parent company IAG, British Airways have been bombarded with calls by those seeking an explanation as to what happened.

It seems like a yearly occurrence now, but as we creep closer to Christmas the threat of strikes from major transport agencies looms ever present. Often tied in to unfair contracts and squeezed out of employment, striking is a legitimate form of protest from disaffected workers, despite the inconvenience caused by it.
