BA workers announce 20 days of strikes

Issue No. 2200

The Unite union has announced fresh strike dates for cabin crew at British Airways.

Workers will strike for 20 days in four five-day strikes.

They will strike from Tuesday 18 May until Saturday 22 May, then from 24-28 May, 30 May until 3 June and 5-9 June.

This will be a crucial battle with the potential to deal a blow to one of Britain's most bullying bosses, Willie Walsh.

Every trade unionist must organise solidarity for the strikers now.
