Pay cuts likely as BA assesses impact of terrorism

British
Airways is planning to cut the pay of 36,000 workers as part of its drive to
reduce costs following the US terror attacks.

The
airline is talking with unions over the proposals to withdraw the additional
week’s holiday pay which is given to staff at Christmas and to stop incremental
pay increases next year.

The
planned pay cuts would affect non-management staff based in the UK including
flight crew, cabin crew, engineers, administrative and ground staff.

BA’s
directors have already agreed to reduce their own pay by 15 per cent and senior
managers face a 10 per cent pay cut.
