Fears over British Airways jobs follows NY attack

Union
officials have met with British Airways managers to discuss the impact of the
World Trade Center terrorist attack on jobs.

A
further meeting will be held later this week when officials from the
Manufacturing Science and Finance Union believe an announcement on job losses
could be made.

Before
last week’s attack unions had been concerned that up to 2,000 jobs could be cut
on top of 1,800 announced earlier this year but there are now worries that the
number of job losses could be significantly higher.

BA’s
transatlantic operations last year accounted for more than one third of its
£9.3bn revenue.
