British Airways strike will not be staged over Easter break

British Airways cabin crew have ruled out striking over Easter if, as expected, a ballot on industrial action endorses a walkout that could ground the entire airline.

The Unite trade union, which represents about 12,000 air stewards, said it never intended to launch a strike during the spring holiday, from 2 April to 5 April, the Guardian reports.

Len McCluskey, the Unite assistant general secretary, said: “I want to make it clear that, if industrial action receives the required mandate from the members and strike action is made necessary by continuing management intransigence, we will not call such action over the Easter holiday period. We are making this announcement now so families can plan their travel arrangements in confidence.”
