Union Votes in Favor of British Airways Strike

Unite, the trade union for British Airways cabin crew, has announced that their ballot has resulted in a vote approving strike action. The union has not set any dates for the proposed strike action.

In a statement released on its website, BA said that it has "strong contingency plans in place" should industrial action take place:

  • They will operate a normal schedule at London Gatwick and London City Airports
  • They aim to fly 100 percent of their longhaul flights to and from London Heathrow
  • They aim to fly the majority of their shorthaul flights to and from London Heathrow

As all of BA flights are operating as normal at the moment, the statement added, any changes to bookings are subject to the original fare rules.

Unite must give seven days’ notice of any proposed strike action.
