BA Stike: Union announces 20 days of strike action

British Airways staff union Unite, has this afternoon announced its intention to conduct 20 days of strikes after a total of 81% of members voted to reject the peace offering from BA regarding an ongoing 14 month dispute over pay and working conditions.

BA cabin crew will strike on four separate five-day stints across May and June. Dates announced today by Unite will be the 18th - 22nd May, 24th - 28th May, 30th May - 3rd June and 5th -9th June.

In the statement posted on at 16.10 this afternoon, the airline states 'We are disappointed that Unite, the trade union for British Airways (BA) cabin crew, has announced that it intends to take further strike action.

We are currently considering our response so we can minimise any disruption during this strike period.

All our flights are operating as normal at the moment.

We will be updating this page with further details as soon as they are available.'

This new announcement just added to British Airways woes of the past few months, and its poor passengers who have suffered from either strike action or volcanic ash disruption.
