BA Workers May Strike on Monday

British AirwaysAccording to the New York Times and other sources, British Airways has announced that it is reinstating plans for a reduced flight schedule next week after a court in London overturned an earlier ruling blocking a walkout by its cabin crews.

Unite, the union representing about 90 percent of the airline’s 13,400 flight attendants, said it was prepared to start an initial five-day strike as early as next Monday after the Court of Appeal upheld the union’s objection to an injunction granted hours before the walkout had originally been scheduled to begin on Tuesday.

On BA's website, the company made the following statement: "We are very disappointed that Unite's appeal has been upheld, reintroducing the threat of strike action. Our key concern now is to keep as many of you flying as possible and we will be proceeding with our contingency plans...We will do all we can to minimise the disruption to you. Please do not come to the airport unless you have a confirmed booking."
