British Airways bosses launch new attack on pay

British Airways (BA) cabin crew in the Unite union have voted by 95 percent to ballot for strikes against attacks on pay, terms and conditions. The turnout was 86 percent.

BA bosses want to slash some workers’ pay by over £9,000 a year. 

Letters sent to workers show that they face losing their jobs if they don’t agree to the new terms.

In 2010 BA introduced the Mixed Fleet, whose cabin crew have worse wages and conditions. 

Now they want to drive everyone down to the lowest level.

But the ballot result shows workers’ willingness to fight. Unite should call a full ballot.
