More walk-outs at BA

Contingency plans are due to be announced tomorrow (Tuesday) by British Airways to deal with the first wave of six days of further walk-outs by mixed fleet cabin crew in the so-called “poverty pay” row.

The new actions, called by the Unite union after a ballot of its members at BA, are due to take place next Sunday, Monday and Tuesday (5, 6 and 7 February) and for another three days from 9 February.

Unite’s case is that mixed fleet crew members, who joined the airline after 2010, are on worse pay rates than other staff. BA has denied the “poverty pay” allegation and says an offer made to its staff to avert the walkouts is “consistent”.

A BA spokesman said: "We have flown all customers to their destinations during the previous strikes by mixed fleet and we will ensure this happens again.

"We will publish more details on Tuesday once we have finalised our contingency plans in relation to the strikes called for February 5-7. On Thursday (2 February), we will publish more details in relation to the second strike period, February 9-11.

"Our pay offer for mixed fleet crew is consistent with deals agreed with Unite for other British Airways' colleagues.”
