BA strike news

BRITISH AIRWAYS cabin crew have voted in favour of another ballot over industrial action.  If the strike(s) go ahead, it could hit passengers travelling over the Christmas holiday period.  A meeting at Kempton Park Racecourse attracted more than 1,000 members of the British Airlines Stewards and Stewardesses Association (BASSA), which is Unite’s main cabin crew branch.  Although the BASSA members have voted for the ballot, it would have to be endorsed by Unite.  Unite Joint General Secretaries Derek Simpson and Tony Woodley are said to be hoping to hold further talks with BA in Manchester this week, where the TUC’s annual congress will be held.  Willie Walsh, BA Chief Executive, said the airline has contingency plans to fly 100% of long haul and a high proportion of short haul services in the event of another walkout. www.baa.com www.unitetheunion.org
