Virgin Atlantic strike

SIR RICHARD BRANSON will be well pleased that a possible strike by Virgin Atlantic fight deck crew has been averted.  After a series of long drawn out discussions between the management and the pilots union a compromise has been reached which appears to suit all parties.  Under a deal, pilots will now receive at least 120 days off per annum, which is believed to equal holidays and weekends that employees in other sectors receive.  BALPA General Secretary Jim McAuslan said: “In our discussions with the company, we have identified a range of relationships and processes that can be improved.  We are looking forward to working with Virgin Atlantic on these matters to ensure that our industrial relations is on a more professional and progressive footing.”  www.balpa.org.uk www.virgin-atlantic.com
