Members of the National Union of Teachers join striking BA workers at Heathrow


BA cabin crew started a three-day strike this morning. They are fighting to stop attacks on jobs, pay, conditions and their Unite union. The picket lines are electric. Pickets cheer as cars beep their horns in support. Even some of the police are giving the thumbs up!

Ground crew joined pickets to show support, and NUT, RMT, PCS and UCU union members came to offer solidarity.

Cabin crew workers are upbeat and determined to win.
