Unite stirs it for BA

BRITISH AIRWAYS has suspended 17 staff noting “Inappropriate comments have been posted on a union website and we have asked Unite for their assistance in removing those postings and identifying those individuals involved.  We will not tolerate intimidation of our staff and any reports of staff being threatened will be investigated.  A number of staff have been suspended while we carry out investigations.”  BA’s 13,500 cabin personnel have until 22 February to vote on what is clearly a very acrimonious issue.  Unite has said that the strike will not take place over the Easter period, but without stating actual dates, adding more problems both for the airline and passengers with advance bookings or lack of them. www.ba.com
