De kabinansatte i British Airways har varslet sju streikedager fordelt i to perioder: Fra den 20. til den 22.mars og fra den 27. til den 30. mars.
Streiken vil berøre de fleste av selskapets flyvninger. Den danske franchise-partneren SUN Air of Scandinavia ramme ikke av streiken og flyr som normalt, melder boarding.dk.
BA-statement om streiken:
"British Airways is extremely disappointed that Unite has announced plans for massive disruption for hundreds of thousands of our customers in the run-up to the Easter holidays.
Unite’s action has no shred of justification. British Airways’ crew are rightly renowned for their professionalism and skills. Our entire package for crew recognises that and is reasonable and fair.
British Airways is facing two years of record financial losses. Unlike other businesses, we have avoided compulsory redundancies and made changes designed to secure a long-term future for our company and our staff. Cabin crew face no pay cut or reduction in terms and conditions – and remain the best rewarded in the UK airline industry".
