BA

Issue No. 1677

COMPUTER workers at Heathrow Airport have succeeded in forcing British Airways management to back off from some of its attacks. BA is still looking to sell off sections of the Information Management department. But a campaign, including the threat of strike action, has forced the company to promise that it will not take any worker off their BA contract.

A BA worker says, 'BA are still looking to outsource. But it was definitely the threat of action and another demonstration that did this. Three weeks ago everyone said there was nothing we could do. Now we have got 100 new union members.'
