BA set to hold strike negotiations

BA and Unite set for showdown talks this week

06 September 2010

British Airways (BA) is set to hold strike negotiations with the Unite union this week in a bid to avoid potential walkouts by cabin crew over Christmas.

Unite members are due to meet at Kempton Park racecourse, near Heathrow, today (6th September) to discuss potential industrial action.

Unite will then resume talks with the airline later his week as they seek a resolution to the long-running dispute over pay and working conditions.

The British Airlines Stewards and Stewardesses Association (BASSA) is advocating for staff to strike over Christmas.

Duncan Holley, branch secretary of BASSA, advised BA customers to consider the possibility of strikes when they make their holiday travel plans.

He said: "What we are trying to do is give people plenty of notice this time round. We are also trying to put pressure on BA by hitting their bookings during one of the busiest times of the year."

BA cabin crew have already held 22 days of walkouts since March, costing the airline an estimated £150 million.
