BA cabin crew look set for strike action

Strike action at British Airways (BA) is likely, unless a compromise can be reached at a meeting on Monday, unions representing the airline’s cabin crew have warned.

According to a report in the Times, a ballot for industrial action will be the next step, unless Willie Walsh, the chief executive of BA, and Derek Simpson and Tony Woodley, joint heads of the Unite union, can come to an agreement over issues such as pay and employee reductions.

The airline wants to make savings of £140m a year from its cabin crew budget, and make radical changes to working practices, the report added.
